David-Winter-OrchardAbout David

“I have undertaken a seven year Child Psychotherapy training at the Tavistock Clinic. In my work I assess and treat infants, adolescents and young people and work with their parents, carers and networks surrounding them. As a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, I help clients understand themselves better through the relationship that develops within the therapeutic context. Problems identified in this relationship often shed light on relationships with others in the outside world, whether from the past or in the present. Through the relationship with the therapist the child is able to communicate their most troubling thoughts and feelings in words rather than through action. As a result they are likely to feel less anxious, more able to learn and able to form stronger relationships.”
