I certainly see a priority in offering a safe space where the child, teenager and young person’s voice is heard without being judged. For younger clients I enable family members to input as well at helpful points. I want to make sure each client is at ease from the first moments and begins a journey towards change.
Please read my profile below, written by the Re..root clinical director:
Sara specialises in working with children, teenagers and young people up to the age of 25. She works in a way that involves the parent(s) or primary carers for clients under 18 at appropriate points in therapy, such a session might be with or separate from the child/adolescent. Sara has excellent experience drawn from working in schools, in private practice and with the NHS, where she focused on Child and Adolescent services.
Sara’s approach to therapy emphasises strengthening confidence and emotional wellbeing in young minds. The challenges involved in growing up can seem overwhelming, and the need to learn to adapt, feel 'part of' rather than isolated and build positive relationships are important developmental areas that Sara helps each individual negotiate. She works with children from primary school age, to teenagers and young people to address the very common issues of anxiety, low mood, social anxiety, challenging behaviour at home and school, procrastination and exam stress, feeling bullied, (face to face or virtually), self-harm, ADHD, ASD and much more.
As well as being fluent in English, Sara can also offer therapy in Italian.
