Counselling & Psychotherapy

Parent-Infant * Parent-Child * Child & Adolescent

Welcome ...

Hello, my name is Manuela. I'm a qualified Child and Adolescent Counsellor and Parent-Child Therapist. I'm also a Trainee Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist and Parent-Infant Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist.

Child and Adolescent: Working with children and families (with children up to age 17). Sessions are held individually with the child or young person as well as work with the parent and / or parent and child together.

Parent-Infant: This work is with parents during pregnancy and with their child (up to age 6).

My private practice is located in Bromley and the Havant / Emsworth / Chichester area. Work can be conducted via video but this depends on the age of the child or young person.

My clinical experience includes:

  • Child, young person and adult bereavement

  • Nurseries, primary and secondary schools

  • Domestic violence

  • Refugee and asylum seeker children and parents

  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

  • Child Protection Social Work

  • Residential adult mental health

Making a referral:

It can be daunting to make contact with a Therapist and to speak about the difficulties you and your child are experiencing. The work is non-judgemental and confidential.

Therapeutic work takes time and will take place at a pace you are comfortable with. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your concerns.

Referral issues include:

  • Anxiety, depression, trauma

  • Bereavement, pregnancy loss

  • Bullying and peer group problems

  • Education and emotional difficulties

  • Neurodiversity - including ASD, ADHD

  • Parental separation & divorce, domestic violence

  • Parent-child relationship difficulties and concerns

  • Perinatal problems; difficulties bonding with your baby or young child
