About me

Many children and young people struggle emotionally. This could be due to school pressures, difficulties with friends, bereavement, social media or a whole host of other factors. Children and young people may benefit from counselling for a variety of reasons. They may be struggling to manage their thoughts and feelings. They may be feeling anxious, angry or depressed. They may have difficulties making and maintaining relationships or have low self-esteem.

As a qualified child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor, I offer children and young people, aged 4-21, a space to explore their thoughts and feelings to help them to feel more confident, to cope better with the challenges that they face and to alleviate distress.

My role as a child and adolescent counsellor is to develop a trusting relationship with the young person so that we can work together to make positive changes in their life. Young people are still developing, and a different approach is often needed than when working with adults. As everyone is unique, I listen to the needs of the young person and work in a way that feels appropriate to them. Children are often unable to say how they are feeling or why they are feeling the way they are, and play and art can help them to communicate this. My therapy room is equipped with art materials, puppets, a sandtray and other creative materials to help my clients express themselves. Relaxation exercises can also be beneficial for many young people.

It is helpful to get clear information about the child’s history and experiences, so it is often preferable to have an initial meeting with the parents/carers before meeting the child. The length of the therapy is dependant upon the needs of the child or young person and can be discussed during this consultation.
