Isla Clark

Child and Adolescent
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

Isla is passionate about helping infants, children and young adults feel heard and understood.  As her entire career has involved working therapeutically in an array of settings such as CAMHS, schools, colleges, children’s homes and in the charity sector, Isla is confident and passionate at treating mild, moderate and severe mental health problems for infants, children, young adults and their parents and carers.

Adjusting her technique according to each patient, she sensitively and intuitively brings complex, confusing and often painful emotions buried in the unconscious to light. This process in itself can bring immense relief. She looks at the meaning behind symptoms and problematic behaviours and helps to explain to patients, their parents and carers, what might be driving their difficulties, pain and frustrations.

Isla ensures to establish a safe and consistent environment. She uses an array of toys, art materials and props to help children demonstrate their current struggles and difficulties as well as their past histories through their play. She brings words to this therapeutic process and helps create a coherent narrative to their struggles and past histories.

She sees parents and carers as key facilitators to children’s health, happiness and recovery.  She therefore works closely with to them to help develop more trusting, playful and meaningful relationships with their children.

Some older children and young adults may feel at ease to talk during their sessions. However, Isla understands that psychotherapy can be a daunting process for some and therefore ensures to have materials available to help her patients communicate. She has in depth knowledge of psychoanalysis, attachment patterns and neurological processes which she uses alongside her intuition to sensitively help build trust with each individual patient at their own pace.
