Welcome to Sparkling Minds Practice

Welcome to Sparkling Minds Practice dedicated to the promotion of psychological well being of children, young people and families. Located in  London, Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire, we provide a warm, professional and confidential service for a wide range of psychological issues.


We are a team of psychotherapists trained at the Tavistock and Portman Clinic in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for Children, Teens, Young People and Families. We collectively have many years of experience working with children, young people and their families in mainstream and specialist schools and NHS clinics (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, CAMHS). 


The ethos behind Sparkling Minds Psychotherapy Practice is one of hope. We firmly believe in the transformative nature of psychotherapy in providing children, young people and their families with the strength and resilience to overcome the difficulties they are facing.


Drawing on emerging neuroscientific research, we believe that the mind and body are inextricably linked and that emotional difficulties can manifest themselves in a variety of ways. These may for example be feeding difficulties in infants, aggression in primary school aged children and addiction or withdrawal and under achievement in teenagers. 


In the majority of cases learning to regulate these emotions is the key to psychological and emotional well being. Neural pathways governing regulation are alive to modification. 


This is most effectively achieved in a relationship with an understanding and attuned therapist. We know that each client is unique and drawing upon both our collective experience, and the most up to date training in its field at the Tavistock Clinic we are confident that we can help.
