Hi my name is Beth Bolitho and I am a child and adolescent therapist.  I set up Bolitho Therapy (  to provide a confidential space for young people to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges of growing up.   I offer face to face sessions at Twelfth House in Walthamstow E17 on Wednesday evenings.  


We all have our mountains to climb. Sometimes as a young person the journey can seem insurmountable. We need a hiking buddy to encourage us and keep us safe; someone with whom we can sit and reflect about the challenges, our achievements as well as thinking about the path yet to climb. I am here to be that companion, to provide a listening ear for young people and their families, to help them to make sense of their worries, whether it be stress and anxiety, coping with family breakdown or bereavement, struggling with peers, or just feeling a bit lost and uncertain about what's next.


I support children experiencing complex emotional needs, such as domestic violence, abuse, bereavement, parental separation and divorce, depression, autism spectrum disorder, and ADHD. By enabling a young person to feel safe, I help them to untangle their worries and gain an understanding of their feelings so that they can better manage both internal and external stressors.


I also provide specific support to parents and caregivers who may be struggling with their relationship with their child or children, whether they are five or fifteen. Understanding how the members of a family have an impact on each other and what we can do to make subtle changes in the way with think about ourselves and our children can be immensely empowering.


My training was undertaken at Birkbeck, University of London. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics. I have recently gained accreditation with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).
