MEET OUR TEAM
CEO and Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
Tess is a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist with over 25 years’ experience working with children, young people and families. She worked as a teacher, in a residential therapeutic community and ran the Peper Harow Young Person’s Support Project in Shropshire before undertaking her clinical training as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Birmingham Trust for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
Since qualifying in 2007, she has worked in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across the West Midlands, before developing her independent practice in Shropshire. Her experience crosses the age range, from work on the neonatal intensive care unit and in parent infant psychotherapy, to therapy with young adults. She is able to work with children alongside parents or individually, offering specialist assessment and effective treatment for most psychological and emotional difficulties of childhood and adolescence. Her clinical skills include group work, family work and individual therapy. A particular specialism is work with children who are Looked After or Adopted, and in providing specialist support to their parents and carers.
