Andrya started working in the mental health field as a university student and became head counsellor for an American summer camp for children and adults with intellectual, mental and physical disabilities. This inspired her to train as an Existential Psychotherapist and has since worked with organisations such as Mind and the West London Centre for Counselling.
From 2000, Andrya worked specifically in primary and secondary schools, as a psychotherapist and project manager of a therapy service. She has also worked for ChildLine, The Place2Be and most recently for NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
She has specialist expertise in working with children and adolescents presenting with acute mental health disorders and extensive experience in working systemically with parents.
In addition, Andrya is an experienced clinical supervisor and trainer, and has taught Child Counselling at The Place2Be, and Adult Psychotherapy at Regents University College, where she has been a visiting lecturer. She runs a private practice in West London.
She is passionate about empowering children and young people to find their voice and support them in developing into emotionally healthy adults.
