Hello, my name is Cassie​

My journey to becoming a psychotherapist began with my own personal therapy. I clearly remember thinking, finally I feel understood. My own therapy has been instrumental in who I am today and how I work with my clients. I would describe myself as a compassionate and calm therapist with a good sense of humour, and I work in a relational, non-judgemental and authentic way.

I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist  in private practice since 2012. After gaining more experience of working therapeutically with children and young people I completed my Masters degree in child and adolescent psychotherapy. 

Since 2013 I have worked as a child and adolescent psychotherapist in a number of schools including primary schools, secondary schools and I have been a senior psychotherapist at a special needs school for ten years.  I have a particular interest in working with children who have complex needs and who have experienced early life trauma.

Coming to therapy for the first time can be a daunting prospect, and my goal is for you to feel at ease in order that I can help you work through what is causing you suffering. If you are feeling confused or overwhelmed, struggling with feeling sad, anxious or depressed, therapy provides a confidential and safe space to express and work through difficult and often painful emotions. My aim is to listen to you without judgement, to understand and connect with your story.

“When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on”

My background training is Humantistic and Integrative which means that I blend different theories in my work and I tailor our sessions to meet your needs. I have a particular passion for working in the following areas – adult survivors (and indeed thrivers) of childhood trauma, bereavement and children and young people with additional needs. Whatever the reason for seeking therapy, I believe within each of us lies the potential for healing and change, no matter what the circumstances or how deep the trauma may be.
