Leeza Moore MA - Children, Young People, Therapist and Supervisor.
I am a warm, caring, compassionate and experienced therapist for children and young people who struggle with everyday anxieties, having extensive experience of successful outcomes with young people who may feel marginalised and isolated in their lives, through peer pressure and relationships with others.
For Children and Young People - counselling differs from that offered to counselling adults. A child's age specific difficulties and their development will determine the method I use to support children in expressing their thoughts, feelings and physical emotions. Working together-ensures a positive outcome while covering issues such as anxiety, depression, self harm, bullying, low self-esteem and eating disorders.I have a warm and welcoming approach. I work creatively using music, play, drawing and art to support children and young people to explore and help to resolve problems through talk therapy and therapeutic play. The preferred approach is always agreed with the child or young person. My experience of working with young people in schools explores issues of self harm, peer pressure, anxiety, bullying and eating disorders .
I have extensive knowledge and experience in using a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, Psychodynamic and Humanistic which is tailored to the individlluals' needs for all age groups. My experience of working with adults extends into areas of alcohol dependency, bereavement, emotional, mental and physical abuse, relational issues, anxiety and depression.
The aim of counselling for children and young people is to help them cope better with their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and safe environment.
