Child & Young Person Psychotherapy
Adult Consultation & Counselling
Sabina Rosdarklin, MACP, TSP, BPC, BACP
I offer a specialist psychotherapy practice with consulting rooms in Exeter City Centre, Devon.
My aim is to contribute to meeting local need for easily accessible, high quality psychotherapy services for children and young people and consultations for parents and adult carers in this region.
My experience is that whether it is a one-off meeting, or brief or long-term work, people want professional treatment delivered at the time when it is needed.
I offer a private, confidential, psychotherapy service that prioritizes prompt consultation, assessment and treatment without delay.
I work in partnership with parents and carers to understand the concerns you bring regarding children and young people who may need treatment. I meet with carers and with young people to explore with you whether your individual needs are best addressed in brief or longer-term psychotherapy, in consultative parent work or or in a different type of therapy. I will refer you to a professional colleague in a related psychological service if we establish together that is the more appropriate treatment option.
Sometimes a one-off meeting to talk about difficulties is a powerful, effective aid to parents, carers and young people. I am happy to meet with you for one session if that is what we agree.
My profession: I work as a child and adolescent psychotherapist with children, and their carers. I am trained to work with children and young people from infancy to early adulthood, up to the age of 25, and to work from infancy onward with children in care.
Prior to working as a child and adolescent psychotherapist I was for many years an adult counsellor, supervisor and Lecturer in Counselling contributing to training counsellors to professional qualification level.
I work with adults as a counsellor although the majority of my work is with children and young people.
Having completed the six year professional doctoral level training at the Tavistock and Portman Institute, London, I am registered as a child and adolescent psychotherapist with the national professional body, the ACP (Association of Child Psychotherapists). I am a qualified adult counsellor and a member of the BACP, (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I have worked in the NHS for many years, in CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health service), treating children, young people and their families. I have experience as a therapist working in therapeutic residential settings for young children and adolescents and of working with children in care settings.
Commitment to those with whom I work:
I work within the ethical framework of the professional bodies to which I belong, the ACP, the TSP (Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists) the BPS (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the BACP, (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As a professional psychotherapist I am also accredited with the Register of the Professional Standards Authority, the national body that regulates professional standards in the health and care public sector, as well as in voluntary and private practice.
