Hannah Galvin

I’m qualified to work with Adults, and with Children and Adolescents; I have qualifications to MA and doctoral level respectively. I’m a fully-registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a full member of the ACP (Association of Child Psychotherapists). The theoretical approach underpinning both courses of training is psychoanalytic.

Psychotherapy can be a helpful way for someone to gain a better understanding of themselves or the nature of a problem and this often takes time. I also offer brief therapeutic work as appropriate.

Some of the problems that lead adults and parents to seek a consultation for psychotherapy for themselves or their child include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Loss
  • Eating problems
  • Relationship problems
  • Sexual problems
  • Destructive behaviours
  • Obsessions
  • Sleep problems
  • School refusal
  • Bed-wetting

My training as a Child Psychotherapist was extensive and provided me with an in-depth understanding of child development. This training took place over a period of six years at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in London. My clinical training placement took place in a CAMHS service.

I see children for psychotherapy and in some cases I meet with parents/guardians alone to think about their child. In some cases, I see the child and parent/guardian together on a regular basis. In child psychotherapy, talking, playing, and drawing are some of the means of communication. The therapist will be attentive and offer ideas about what the child might be experiencing.

Sessions last fifty minutes and take place at a set day and time each week. Sessions may be once weekly or both parties might agree a more frequent arrangement.

Please contact me to discuss any questions and to arrange a consultation.

My fee is £60 per session. I offer remote sessions when this makes sense.

I have many years’ experience of working in the NHS.
