About me

I am a qualified Child and Adolescent Counsellor working privately and for a charity. I am also a Mental Health Lead in a University.  In my private practice I work with all age groups specialising in children, young people and families.  In these uncertain times I am now offering on line counselling to help support the anxiety and isolation of all ages.  

As a former Senior Learning Mentor in schools and private tutor I have a real understanding that growing up can be hard and parenting children whilst they grow can also be hard. I can work with children and young people but also with adult family members. I also have much experience of working with neuro-diverse children (for e.g those with symptoms of or diagnosed with ADHD, ASD or ODD).

I can support your child or young person if they are struggling with school right now; maybe they are finding it hard to make friends or to stick to the rules; they may often be in trouble, try to avoid going to school, talk of feeling anxious - all of these things can be explored in counselling. As a former mentor in schools and having worked in children homes, I have a real understanding of how complex life can be when growing up and sometimes school can feel like it needs to be navigated rather than enjoyed. This can put a real strain on relationships at home.
