Flora is an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, registered with the UKCP. Her main aim in therapy is to create a safe environment where her clients feel accepted and understood. Her open-mindedness, warmth and curiosity help young people feel free to explore their difficulties without fear of judgment. Her work is trauma-informed and she uses creative interventions as well as techniques she has learnt from Somatic Experiencing training. Flora has experience in a multitude of areas, including single-incident and developmental trauma, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicidality, anxiety and panic attacks, perfectionism, relationship difficulties, bullying and difficulties around eating.
Flora has worked with children and young people in a wide range of settings: at ChildLine, Great Ormond Street Hospital and at Solace Women’s Aid. She has worked as a Counsellor in Primary and Secondary schools as well as a Leaving Care Unit. These experiences led Flora to strongly believe in the importance of building strong working alliances not only with young people but their families and professionals involved in their lives.
Flora experienced the healing quality of nature since a young age, which she is pleased to incorporate in her work via a training in Eco Psychotherapy, which she will complete in 2022.
