Ryan Lowe

Consultant Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist

MA, Mpsych psych, MACP, UKCP

I am an experienced, qualified and accredited Child, Adolescent and Parent Psychotherapist who has worked with children for over 19  years both privately and within the NHS.  I work with a wide range of issues, from relatively minor difficulties requiring advice and support, to more entrenched family problems, including therapeutic intervention and support for serious mental health difficulties.

I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London, but have developed my own way of working with and understanding children and families, focusing in particular on bonding, attachment and containment issues within families.

My own upbringing included a great deal of travel through Europe, India, Indonesia and America and this has given me a valuable insight into many cultures, customs and religions. It has also helped me to develop an inclusive view of the world and a respect for the individuality and diversity of people's views and beliefs.

My work has been varied but currently it includes teaching and supervising of other child psychotherapists as well as being employed to carry out assessments for the family law courts in London.   I work from consulting rooms in Islington and Waterloo, lecture in various child and family related subjects and run parenting support groups in North London.

I hold two masters level qualifications in psychoanalytic studies and psychoanalytic psychotherapy with children adolescents and parents. I am a full member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP) and Chair of the ACP's Independent Practice Committee.  I am also a full member of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP) and registered with AxaPPP healthcare for insurance purposes.

Further experience that I consider relevant is the parenting of my own two gorgeous children.
