About Me

I am a child psychologist specialised in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents. 

I run a private practice in South West London: Battersea/Clapham, in which I offer psychodiagnostic assessments  and psychotherapy sessions for pre-school and school aged children in English, French and Spanish.

I have been working as a psychologist in private practice for several years treating and supporting children and young people with emotional, behavioural and developmental difficulties. I work as well with parents guiding them with practical advice and providing emotional support.

I am a caring and empathic therapist with significant experience in successfully helping troubled children and young people achieving their full potential and overcoming difficulties. I accompany them in that process, with a sensitive listening to their issues, offering them the possibility to express their fear and anxieties in a safe place. The consulting room is a place where kids and young people are invited to explore and use the different materials and objects for them to express, recreate, play and talk about their difficulties.
