Dr Angela Evans is a Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with fifteen years experience in NHS Child and Family Mental Health Services.

She is a member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists and she trained at the Tavistock Clinic (London). Her doctoral thesis examined the emotional complexities of SENCos’ work in schools, and of the situations of the children with whom they work. Her training followed fifteen years of professional teaching practice.

Dr Evans is an experienced clinical practitioner in psychotherapy for children, adolescents and young adults. She offers brief and long-term work with individuals up to 25 and with parents and families, helping them to work through a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

She specialises in Looked After Children but works with a wide range of issues with all children and young people. Her attachment training courses have been developed and delivered specifically to support carers, social workers and other key players in the support networks of looked after children. She is a visiting lecturer at Salomans College for Applied Psychology and Tobias School of Art and Therapy, and an external examiner for Tavistock Clinic and Tobias School of Art and Therapy. She also has extensive experience in supervising psychotherapists and counsellers.

Dr Evans has a sympathetic but clear thinking approach that helps patients and clients to think more clearly, to gain deep insights, and to resolve difficult situations. She is the author of a series of published articles on family dynamics and parenting issues (available from this website).
