Being a teenager can be very difficult at the best of times, and struggling with low mood, anxiety, exam pressure, friendships and trouble at home can make it so much more unmanageable.

I provide a friendly, safe and proactive space to be honest about how you feel and what's getting to you, and how we can move forward to make things better.
I offer short- term, targeted work and mid-term work for more involved problems.
I work one-to-one with each young person, and also encourage parental input and offer additional mediation sessions between young people and parents and the start or end of treatment.
