I am a qualified integrative child counsellor, trained to work specifically with children and young people from 3 years to 19 years.
I offer a counselling experience that is truly relational and specific to each child’s problems, and provide therapeutic support to children and young people experiencing difficult emotional and behavioural issues that may be causing them distress.
I also specialise in the use of creative arts and play therapy to enable young people to deal with their thoughts, feelings and behaviour, and make better sense of their world, helping them to find a path toward well-being.
I work privately in Woodbridge, and in local primary and high schools.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Child Counselling Diploma from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education and a Post Graduate Certificate in The Therapeutic Arts (UEL). I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I work from an integrative approach and I am person-centred, attachment focused and relational.
I attend regular supervision to adhere to the BACP's strict code of practise, have the Certificate in Counselling Skills and have passed the Child Protection Exam (IATE).
I have an enhanced DBS check and hold professional indemnity insurance.
Areas of counselling I deal with

I charge £25 for an hour session.
We will have an initial free session together where we discuss how I can help your child or young person. If you wish to proceed we will arrange the first session for your child and if they are happy, counselling sessions will be weekly, working alongside school commitments. Parents will not be in sessions and will be asked to drop off and pick up their children where appropriate to the child's age. Each term there is an opportunity for parents to have a meeting to discuss on-going therapy.
It is usual to commit to at least 6 sessions and can be longer as required. It is also beneficial to work towards a planned ending. We will enter a therapy contract so our arrangements and the content of sessions are clearly understood. All sessions remain confidential unless there may be a concern relating to a child safeguarding issue.
