Welcome to Sparkling Minds Practice
Welcome to Sparkling Minds Practice dedicated to the promotion of psychological well being of children, young people and families.
We are qualified Child, Young People and Family Psychotherapists. We trained at the Tavistock and Portman Clinic NHS Trust. Aurelie Chesny is fully accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council). Kathryn Wood is fully accredited by the BPC. We have many years experience working with schools, NHS Services (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, CAMHS) and with clients in private practice.
For primary aged children, we offer longer term therapeutic work, including Play and Art Therapy depending on the level of difficulties for example attachments issue.
There is also an increasing evidence base to support the effectiveness of parent/carer led interventions for difficulties, such as anxiety and behavioural issues. We are able to offer this approach to parents and carers as well as Systemic Family Therapy.
For secondary aged pupils and young people aged 16 plus, we offer Cognitive Behavioural informed Therapy, guided self-help, and talking therapy. Each client is individual and we will adapt our therapeutic approach accordingly.
If we find that additional or alternative support is required, we can signpost and / or facilitate referrals to appropriate services.
Psychological therapies are most effective when the client feels listened to and understood. This is at the core of Sparkling Minds Practice. We pride ourselves on our non judgmental approach which is combined with our commitment to the most recent and evidenced based research and interventions.
We are also able to offer supervision to individuals and groups.
