Mary Rennison Msc, Reg.MBACP
I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist experiencenced with working with teenagers in a variety of different settings. I aim to work flexibly to create a warm, caring and friendly environment to enable young people to think and work through the issues they maybe facing in order to bring about lasting change. I work exclusively with young people because I am convinced that this age group needs a a unique and specialized care.
I have experience working with anxiety, depression, issues to you with self esteem and identity , bereavement, ADHD, autistic traits and any other issue that young people might face. I am always happy to give advice and refer on if I feel I not the best therapy option available . I also offer parenting work one one off basis for those moments when parents just need advice from a professionals about their child.
Each session is 50 minutes long. Initial first sessions are always an opportunity for me to do an assessment and for the young person to find out if they think sessions with me would be helpful and I would be the type of person they might be able to chat to before committing to any future sessions.
