Ling Shuet Cheung
Ling Shuet Cheung works to provide a safe, empathic and creative space for young people (5-18) and their families to feel heard and accepted. Worrying situations in the present are most likely to have originated in past experiences, she works collaboratively with young people to understand these experiences, and to explore current difficulties which might be bothering them. Her goal is to help young people feel more empowered in their daily lives, increase self-esteem and confidence, and manage difficult feelings.
Ling currently works for NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. She also has 7 years of managerial and frontline experience working in a shelter for victims of domestic violence, juvenile detention centre, and takes particular interest in behavioural issues stemming from special educational needs, learning difficulties and adverse childhood experiences. Areas of Psychotherapy that she works with include anger management, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, trauma, bereavement and loss, and difficulty in expressing feelings.
Ling holds an MA in Art Psychotherapy. She is a registered Art Psychotherapist with HCPC and a member of BACP. Her training is underpinned by psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theory but offers a flexible approach to suit the young person’s needs. She uses a variety of activities such as art, stories, poetry and toys in her sessions, as well as a space for talking.
Ling works in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Tooting.
