About us

We take a flexible approach to counselling and our sessions are always client led, as counselling is all about YOU the client and exploring what you feel you may need, what is holding you back, your story, choices and what’s happened to you along the way. Counselling facilitates self-awareness and understanding which brings about change.

Some clients, especially young people, due to difficult and traumatic experiences, are unable to articulate with words, or are too overwhelmed when accessing deeply buried events and so they are able to feel safer working with metaphors like art, poetry, stories, sand and stone work. We embrace the creative tools and processes which allow you a safe space in which to express yourself and heal.

​We both did our training in "Humanistic" therapeutic counselling with Carl Rogers "Person Centred" underpinning our approach. We have continued training over the years in many styles of counselling including training to work with young people.

​Rewellness is run as our private practice, we also work for a charity/agency working within local schools offering children of all ages therapy for a wide range of needs.

Previously, we have also have had experience working within a large local agency, counselling for CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) as well as working for a project counselling woman and children affected by domestic violence.

Further information

We are passionate about helping children and young people to access the support and the tools needed to improve their lives .

Many young people struggle with mental health conditions and challenges in life, from bullying to grief and loss. Counselling provides the opportunity and the safe environment, away from their school or home life, where they often can feel less pressure and share their concerns, worries and stories.

We use varying methods to help them express themselves, depending on their age, situation, and development. This may include play, art, drawing, sand tray, or figures as metaphors , or older children may prefer talking therapy or a mixture of both.

We are able to work intuitively with the young people and their needs and find what works for them, within the sessions.

We have worked with some young people with ADHD and Aspergers. They have been able to focus better with sensory objects and have sometimes needed more space or to walk around in sessions.
