Dr Diana Samuels - Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist – MA, UKCP

Child & Adolescent Psycotherapy

Diana specialises in working with children and young people who have emotional difficulties. Diana’s training as a child and adolescent psychotherapist, as well as her previous training as a play therapist, has given her skills so that she is comfortable working non-verbally, with play and art, as well as verbally.  This way of working suits not only younger children, but also teenagers who may find it difficult to talk to adults about their feelings.

Although Diana mostly sees children alone, she always considers a child as part of a family and aims to work with the whole family to think together how the child can best be supported.    If it would be helpful to meet with parents together with their children, or with parents alone, she is able to offer this as a service.

Diana has particular experience in working with:

Depression, trauma, attachment disorders, low self-esteem, bereavement, family separation & divorce, domestic violence, self-harm, abuse, fostering and adoption, young carers, bullying.
