I’m the founder of Onwards and Upwards Psychology, mum of two human babies (and one fur) and a passionate paediatric psychologist. My passion lies in supporting children and families to connect to, understand embrace their whole-heated and unique selves. When you come to a session, my aim is to provide a safe space to explore difficult emotions, to help guide you on your child’s developmental journey using the latest evidence-based strategies and assessment tools, and to have a little fun along the way.
Onwards and Upwards Psychology has a special interest in helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. We are able to help with other issues across the developmental stages of life and enhancing or adapting educational needs.
At Onwards and Upwards, our aim is to teach kids to be confident and connected with their emotions and embrace their wholehearted, unique selves.
We recognize the important role that we get to play in mental health early intervention and the flow on effects in contributing to more emotionally stable and successful adults. The clinic uses a strengths-based approach and positive psychology in working with a child's strengths and weaknesses. We hope that in celebrating them, they learn to celebrate themselves.
