About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I am Esther, a mother of two girls and a lover of all things outdoors. I am a BACP registered children and young people’s counsellor. I work in an integrative way (This means I use a variety of approaches - play therapy, CBT, talking therapy, art, etc).

I started off as a youth worker when I was 18. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew I wanted to help people.

I had little interest in going to university at 18, but after many years in jobs that were just not quite right, I wanted to find my passion and vocation. I went to university later in life to study an undergraduate degree in Psychology. I then realized the human brain was something to behold. Fast forward to now, and I found my calling. I want all children and young people to feel heard without expectation or judgment. I have completed an MSc in counselling children and young people and have never looked back. My practice is professional, person-centred, and open to all. If there is something in your life that needs to be heard or if you just can’t quite manage the days, please get in touch for a non-judgmental chat.

Another part of my work is family support. I have worked in this field for many years and I am more than happy to speak with parents who feel they need some support or guidance on how to raise, support, or just be with their child. 

In addition to all of the above, I am able to offer training and support to schools on mental health, bereavement, trauma, classroom practice, and behaviour. If you require more information on the services offered, please contact me.

Practice description

I am a highly experienced and compassionate counsellor dedicated to working with children and young people. I am here to help you navigate your journey towards being your best self and living the life you deserve.

My service offers a comprehensive counselling experience, designed to help clients navigate challenges, build resilience, and achieve personal growth. As a skilled therapist I can provide individualised support tailored to the specific needs of each client on an on-going basis.

My counselling services provide a safe and nurturing space for children and young people to explore their feelings, develop coping skills, and find their inner strength. I understand the importance of addressing the unique needs of every individual and strive to make a positive impact. I can see clients in a number of locations which can be discussed on booking.

My first session

Prior to counselling starting I would require a referral form from either the client or their parent. This can then be followed by a free 15 minute consultation over the phone to discuss the options available. Sessions can then be booked at a mutual agreed time. The first session will be held with the client where we will discuss their counselling journey, including goals and how they wish to proceed. 

I offer sessions in the comfort of your own home as long as there is a private space available for the session. I can also offer sessions in school if the school is willing to facilitate this.
