Grace is currently in her final year of Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy training, following the completion of a MSc in Clinical Psychology and Mental Health and BSc (hons) in Psychology.
Over the past 8 years she has worked with both adults and children in a variety of therapeutic roles. This includes settings such as charities, schools, pupil referral units and mental health units. Currently she works as a youth counsellor and substance misuse practitioner within the youth justice system for a local authority in London.
Grace is an advocate for making therapy accessible for everyone and recognises the need to consider individual’s circumstances and identify service barriers, which could prevent them from accessing therapeutic support. Grace feels it is important to provide a client-led approach where she can be guided by what the client needs from the therapy and is able to work at their own pace. She is passionate about developing relationships and creating an environment where clients feel safe and empowered to share their stories and experiences. Sometimes finding the right words can be difficult and so she invites the use of creative interventions to allow the full expression of the self.
