I facilitate creative safe spaces for children and young people to feel empowered to explore their emotional and external world both on an individual and organisational basis.

Working with me
Individuals can work with me through 1:1 therapy or by exploring my courses, and I offer several different options for organisations and professionals.
Ongoing therapeutic support or short term therapy with me might be just what your child needs to shift any mental health and wellbeing difficulties they might be experiencing. I work closely with the young person and/or their families to improve emotional wellbeing and develop tools to support their mental health, in the moment and beyond their therapy journey.
I offer a range of courses for parents to help with child well-being, and courses for organisations such as schools that are designed to help them think strategically and be reflective in their approach in implementing changes that promote racial identity and cultural competence awareness and practice within education and mental health sectors.
I offer a collaborative, supportive and non-judgmental space to mental health practitioners to reflect on their practice, and the emotional impact of the work within the system. Reflective and clinical supervision allows you to also develop your cultural awareness and understanding of intersectionality, thus strengthen your practice.
“Kemi did an excellent training video for my website about supporting children suffering from bereavement. She is a professional and brilliant trainer.”
