I am a qualified integrative child counsellor, trained to work specifically with children and young people from 3 years to 19 years.
I offer a counselling experience that is truly relational and specific to each child, providing therapeutic support to children and young people experiencing difficult emotional and behavioural issues that may be causing them distress. This may be low self-esteem, anxiety, feeling low, stress and relationship issues.
I also specialise in using creative arts therapeutically to enable young people to deal with their thoughts, feelings and behaviour and make better sense of their world. Working together, children can find a path toward better well-being and the support to build their own confidence and resilience.
I work privately in Woodbridge and in local primary and high schools.

I charge £40 for client sessions which are usually hourly. Payment of a session will be required when a cancellation is less than 24 hours before the booked time.
I offer an initial parent only session where together we discuss what is going on for your child at the moment. If you wish to proceed, counselling sessions will be weekly, working alongside school commitments. Parents can drop off and pick up their children where appropriate to the child's age. Each term there is an opportunity for parents to have a meeting to discuss ongoing therapy.
It is usual to commit to at least 6 sessions and can be longer as required, as it is beneficial to work towards a planned ending. We will enter a therapy contract so our arrangements and the content of sessions are clearly understood. All sessions remain confidential unless there is a concern relating to a safeguarding issue.
