Ginny is an integrative child and adolescent counsellor with three years’ experience working with children and teenagers. Her approach is gentle, warm and non judgemental. She respects each child’s uniqueness and individuality and uses both talking therapy and creative and playful techniques involving art, role play and movement, to help them explore what is going on for them.
Her focus is to help the young person develop their self-understanding so they can make sense of themselves and the world around them and feel more settled emotionally. She works with the parents to help them see how they can support their child through this process and beyond.
For three years, Ginny counselled children and adolescents in primary schools for the children’s mental health charity Place2Be, in south London. She currently provides therapy directly to a primary school in east London, working on a one-to-one basis with pupils and facilitating small group work when appropriate.
Before becoming a therapist, Ginny was a producer at Channel 4 News, specialising in health and social care, winning a 2015 Mind in the Media Award for coverage of postpartum psychosis. She has previously taught children and adolescents in the UK and abroad.
