In order to meet the needs of individual clients, Child in Time refers on to a small number of trusted, private therapists working in different locations. Please contact Chloe@childintime to arrange a preliminary session with any of the therapists listed below.
I am a UKCP registered, qualified and registered Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist with a Masters degree in Integrative Child Psychotherapy from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education and a Masters degree in the Psychoanalytic Studies of Adolescence from the Tavistock and Portman.
My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents, parents and teachers in private and educational sectors for more than 20 years. My special interest is supporting young people during the turmoil of adolescence. I also have years of experience working with individuals with special needs, especially Aspergers.
I am a clinical supervisor, a study group facilitator for Child in Time and a primary supervisor and lecturer at the MA in Integrative Child Psychotherapy and at the Diploma in Counselling children at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. I also speak Portuguese.
I’m Tamsin Lemkow, a qualified child counsellor and a registered member of BACP. I have had experience working with young people who have a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, sexual identity, abuse, family breakdown, self-harm and suicidality. Clients can utilise the arts in my sessions to help them express themselves and I also use CBT strategies and mindfulness techniques.
Since 2014 I have been practicing professionally in secondary and primary schools across London. My private practice is in Muswell Hill, N10. Alongside counselling I am also a qualified Teen yoga instructor teaching in schools and privately.
I am a UKCP registered, qualified Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist with a Masters degree in Child, Adolescent and Family Therapy from The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy in Education. I am also a registered Drama Therapist from Central School of Speech and Drama. I work with adults, children, adolescents and families. In addition I have a diploma in supervision from Terapia.
When I work with teenagers, it may be that talking is the best way of communicating. However, I always have art and craft materials on offer for a young person as it may give also them another way of communicating and/or help them relax in the session whilst talking.
Rather than working with a young person alone, at times it may be helpful to work with parent/s/carer and child together. It may be that the parent/s/carer/young person, need some support within their relationship and therefore someone who is not directly involved within the family structure can help navigate this.
I also have extensive experience in bereavement, where I work as a lead practitioner and supervisor for a children’s bereavement charity.
I am a fully qualified, registered integrative arts therapist with a diploma in psychotherapeutic child counselling from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education. I work with children and young people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and offer individual counselling and creative coaching sessions. My work as a private practitioner is informed by 10 years of professional experience working therapeutically with children and young people in educational settings.
I provide a safe, confidential space for young people to express the things that matter to them using words and creative play. Themes I come across in my therapeutic work include anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive compulsive disorders, grief, trauma, anger, self harm, perfectionism, low self esteem, parental separation and friendship issues, alongside other life transitions.
Creative coaching offers a more focussed approach and can be helpful for young people and young adults who wish to explore their creative potential and develop self care practices that lead to a more fulfilled life. I draw from several disciplines including mindfulness, bio-reprogramming and compassion focussed therapy.
I am a BACP registered Integrative Counsellor, with a diploma from ‘Re-vision’, the Centre for Integrative and Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy. For the last twenty years I have worked in Education and Mental Health with a particularly interest in the needs of young people and young adults.
My integrative training is informed by Transpersonal, Psychodynamic and Jungian Depth Psychology. My approach is warm and empathic – informed by research which suggests that the most important, transformative and healing aspect of talking therapy is the relationship between client and counsellor.
I am a qualified Art Psychotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have over ten years experience of working therapeutically and creatively with children in a diverse range of settings including schools, local authorities, homeless hostels and the NHS. As an art therapist I am specialised in working with children, young people and families, supporting them with a wide range of issues, including bereavement, trauma, identity, anxiety, depression, substance misuse, parenting and attachment.
Art making and symbolism forms a large part of my work, whether to support the expression of feelings and experiences that can’t be put into words or to help clients relax and open up. I take a person centred approach, supporting clients to take the lead and most importantly provide a space that feels boundaried, safe and confidential.
I also explore the way children relate to me and consider this in the context of the key relationships in their lives. As the therapeutic relationship develops, this leads to the repairing of relational issues such as attachment problems and trust issues.
I have been working as a child and adolescent psychotherapist since 2009 in schools, charities and privately. I specialise in 1:1 therapy for children but also run groups and manange trainees.
My work is very diverse, as are my clients, and I am passionate about working to help children, young people and families to feel better about themselves and themselves in relation to others and the outside world. This is done in the context of an empathic therapeutic relationship in a safe, caring and confidential space. Part of the work can be using image, metaphor, play, the arts and the body. This helps to gain self-awareness and healing with children and young people with various issues.
I work with children and young people with various issues affecting their well-being such as trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, anger issues, obsessive compulsive behaviour, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, self-harm, problems with intimacy, Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD. I am UKCP registered and a member of the BACP.
I absolutely adore children and feel passionate about their well-being. Depending on the child’s needs I use different modalities to support the child the best possible ways. Earlier in my career I provided child-centred psychotherapy and counselling in New York inner city schools before moving to work in London schools as well as my private practice. I also work with parents to help form stronger relationship with their child.
Areas of speciality and interest include autism and developmental disorders (I’m trained in DIR Floor-time), infancy and early childhood mental health, therapeutic work with parents, sensory processing and integration in young children. I frequently work with issues such as bullying, trauma, abuse, anxiety and those who have experienced loss through bereavement, big moves, family breakdown, divorce or separation.
Hello, my name is Julia, I am an integrative counsellor/therapist working with children, young people and adults in schools, non-profit organisations, community services (in partnership with NHS Trusts) and the private sector.
There might be many reasons why people seek support to improve their emotional/mental health; feeling lost, bereavement, anxiety, depression, past traumas, to name a few. The process of counselling/therapy with its safe and contained environment offers a path where those difficulties can be explored, creating meaningful long-lasting life changes.
My integrative approach, underpinned by psychodynamic, humanistic, attachment and systemic theories, is employed through talking, creative and play therapy in a warm, caring and approachable way that can be adapted to each client’s needs.
Above all, I believe that compassion, willingness to be present and genuineness are the essential ingredients of a good therapeutic relationship, which facilitate the conditions where psychological shifts can occur.

In her private practice (currently all online) Gemma works with those struggling with anxiety, depression, attachment issues, emotional blocks, family problems, insecurity, grief, loss and low self-esteem. She offers long-term work with clients and has also seen that the seeds of healing can be planted in the space of a few sessions.
