Ade Ademuyiwa PGDip MBACP
Hello my name is Ade and I am a qualified counsellor with over eight years counselling experience working with children and young people. I am committed to my work with children and young people, supporting them to express their thoughts and feelings and to build up their resilience, emotional well-being and good mental health. This is essential for all children and young people to enable them to grow emotionally, academically and socially. I am not there to give advice, I am there to give support to help make positive decisions and changes.
It is essential when working with children and young people to think systemically, to be aware of the other relationships in the person’s life and how these can be affected when a child or young person is experiencing emotional difficulties. With therapeutic support in a safe and understanding environment, children and young people will be in a better place to develop a good relationship with themselves and others.
I use an integrative, psychodynamic, person centred approach and feel that core conditions of empathy, respect, unconditional positive regard and being non-judgmental are an important base to any human relationship.
Sessions, depending on age, are based on play, art and/or talking therapy. Each session is mainly led by the child or young person in whichever medium they feel comfortable with. Sessions can be time-limited, i.e. a number of planned sessions (a minimum of 6 sessions is recommended), or open ended.
'The time period is usually decided on at the end of the first meeting between counsellor and client. Many counsellors work for short fixed-term periods such as six or 12 weeks, although some work in a more open-ended way, continuing to provide sessions until the client feels ready to leave'.
Areas I work with are:
- child related issues
- difficulties in relationships
- domestic violence
- family issues
- low self-confidence
- low self-esteem
I have previously worked with The Place2Be as an Assistant School Project Manager and counsellor. I did volunteer work with CARIS bereavement service and Stephen's Place a domestic violence intervention programme. This experience gave me invaluable training and experience to go on to manage and develop my own private practice.
