Where are you located?
We are based inside Great Ormond Street Hospital International Private Patients Department.
What happens the first time I meet you?
The first time we meet you and your child we will make the time to learn more about the difficulties they are experiencing. At the end of this first meeting we will discuss a plan for treatment and also give you the opportunity to decide whether you would like to proceed.
Are you accredited by any professional body?
I am regulated by a professional body including the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society (BPS)
What age range of children do you see?
We see children from 4 -17 years for therapy and for cognitive assessments.
How many sessions will my child need?
We follow the NICE guidelines in terms of the number of treatment sessions necessary to overcome difficulties. However, for cognitive assessments we aim to complete the whole assessment within 3-4 hours.
What do I do next?
If you are interested in finding out more, or have any questions, feel free to get in touch. We are always happy to have an informal discussion over the phone first.
There is a particular type of therapy I want. Do you offer it?
We offer a full range of therapies some of which include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy together with Comprehensive Behaviour Therapies for Tics (CBITS).
Can my child have sessions over skype?
Therapy via skype can be helpful for treatment sessions but assessments are always already carried out face to face with parents and children first.

This is subject to availability and your location. We generally see children in and around the London area.
Can you see my child I live overseas?
Yes, we offer private assessments overseas. If you have such a request please get in touch.
