About me

Hello my name is Ade Ademuyiwa.  I am a child counsellor with eight years' counselling experience in providing one-to-one therapeutic support to children and young people.  I have my own private practice located in Chelsea.  I currently see clients once a week in Chelsea.  I also visit children and young people at their school and/or family centres to be able to provide one-to-one counselling sessions.

The areas I work with are: loss, bereavement, anxiety, self-esteem, bullying, depression, aggression, domestic abuse, attachment issues, family issues, difficulties in relationships and other child/ adolescent related issues.  I previously worked as an Assistant School Project Manager/ counsellor with The Place2be, working alongside the School Project Manager to provide a school counselling service.  During my time with The Place2be I have seen how I can contribute to an improvement in the lives of the children with whom I work.

I did volunteer work with CARIS bereavement service for three years and with Stephen's Place, a domestic violence intervention programme, for one year.  This experience gave me invaluable training and experience to go on to manage and develop my own private practice.  I am committed to my counselling work with children and young people, helping to support them to express their thoughts and feelings; to help build up their resilience, emotional well-being and good mental health.  This is essential for all to enable them to grow emotionally, academically and socially.

I have a postgraduate diploma in Counselling Children in Schools and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

Nina Simone – ‘we’ll get it together and we'll get it undone’

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'.
