• Psychotherapy & art psychotherapy service for children & young people in London, by psychotherapist Lisa Gorman.

working with children and young people …

I hold a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificate.

I have over a decade of experience working with children & young people (YP). My work with children & YP takes place within London school settings or privately in Barnes SW13. The room in Barnes is ideally suited for children and YP to make art and talking therapy. I offer one to one after-school appointments from 3pm to 6pm on week-days.

how it works:

Children are accompanied to a weekly fifty minute session by an adult and then collected again after each session ends promptly. There is a small quiet waiting area or many nice cafes and duck pond to visit while parent/carers wait.
My work with children & young people can help with:

  • Building confidence
  • Lowering anxiety
  • Is enjoyable as well as gently challenging
  • Improving difficult behaviours
  • Improving and developing awareness and tolerance of boundaries
  • Calming and develops reflection
  • Improving, fight flight freeze responses
  • Psycho-education develops self-awareness

The therapeutic relationship offers a way to better imagine and tolerate another’s mind-as being separate and this can improve empathy.
