As a counsellor and a parent (both adoptive and birth), I understand how distressing it can be to see your child experiencing emotional difficulties. I am passionate about helping young people overcome difficulties and go on to live happier lives and achieve their potential.
I have advanced training to work in this specialised area, ensuring I work with young people in a safe, ethical and effective manner. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and have training in safeguarding and many other areas impacting the mental health of young people. I have worked extensively in schools and in private practice.
Very young children often struggle to find the words to discuss how they are feeling. I work creatively using sand, toys, clay and other art materials to help them express themselves. Older children may be more verbal or may also prefer creative ways of working, I adapt my practice to suit every individual.
Where appropriate the parents may also be involved in therapy, for example joint sessions to help young people and and parents communicate more effectively. I am a DDP Informed and supervised practitioner if this is an area you would like to explore please call to discuss. I work flexibly and am open to discuss any issues you and your family may be experiencing.
I am able to visit schools or I can offer evening and Saturday morning appointments if preferred.
