Would you like to learn how to deal with your emotions and use your inner resources to gain control of your thoughts and feelings?
If you answered yes, maybe counselling is for you.
I provide one to one therapy sessions, combining traditional talking therapies, (Humanistic/Psychodynamic) with the use of art/drama/play therapy to work with deeper and long term issues.This can be integrated within a CBT model to aid recovery from trauma, phobias, social phobia.
I work with children( 5 yrs- 11),adolescents(12-18), and adults.
I also offer Hypnotherapy, and relaxation with Mindfulness to provide a full Holistic approach to a healthier mind, body and spirit.
I specialise in working with children aged 5-11 years.
I provide a place where you can express your feelings through talking, art, creative work and play.
I work one to one in a safe and confidential space. Each session lasts for 60 minutes.
I can help you to cope with struggles in your life and the stresses of family living. I aim to enable you to learn how you can solve problems to enable you to manage feelings such as frustration, anger, sadness, and anxiety.
Issues I work with are:
Bereavement, Bullying at work or school, low self-esteem, stress, low self-confidence, self-harm,behaviour issues, Transition Year 6 to Year 7, Family crisis, anger- management, depression, anxiety, financial difficulties, social phobias, relationship problems with friends & family.
When working with children, I work closely with the parents/carers of the child, together we decide on the priority issues and a time scale that suits. This will be reviewed after 6 weeks with full feedback.
Feedback from clients:
"I just feel that I never really thanked you properly for the time you gave me, so: thank you. I hope you know that you really helped me through a tough time and although our sessions ended quite suddenly, I valued them very much. You're a good counsellor, I loved your feedback and you allowed me to think of things in a new way, which is so important." Bethany
