About me and my therapy practice
My work as a Child and Adolescent Therapist & Young Adult therapist (6 - 28 yrs) is a practical, attachment focused, trauma informed and a creatively developed framework to specifically respond to children/young adults in times of difficulty.
I understand that some children and young adults can have big feelings or overwhelming experiences. Left unprocessed these can impact a young person's ability to thrive or remain as social as they once were.
As everyone one is unique ,and no two challenges are felt the same, I build relationships that seek to meet a young person where they are today.
If appropriate and of interest to a young person, I can use a mixture of therapeutic invitations including; creativity (drawing and image making) play , talk, psychoeducation about our brains and bodies and attachment focused interventions that support the healing of ourselves and our relationships - central to well being and mental health outcomes.
Every person's inside story ( and the storyteller themselves) matters to me. All clients are invited to express whatever is important to them specifically from a place of acceptance and non judgement. Sessions travel at a child/ young adults pace first and foremost.
I work to a minimum of 6 sessions as a useful starting assessment period for all parties. please do visit my website for more information.
Cost: £70.00 per session
Integrative therapy seeks to work from where a child/young adult is today. Sessions recognize strengths as well as difficulties, seeing the whole of you. This includes supporting clients in difficulty to;
- Understand big or conflicting emotions
- Rediscover social skills and self esteem
- Explore what matters & how it matters specifically
- Feel safer in ones body
- Feel less anxious/avoidant of challenges
- Learn about your brain, stress and how your nervous system responds to challenges ; so you can learn to feel less out of control
- Explore relationships /family dyamics
- Explore identity in times of change
- Start to develop resilience to 'bounce back' from challenges
- Feel hopeful and motivated again
My first session
Following an initial free telephone call/email enquiry I will;
Invite significant adults around a child or young person ( 16 and under) to meet with me in person/online for information gathering session. This will usually run for 50 minutes and allows me to gain a deeper understanding of your child & how I can work with them.
If you are 18 + we will set up the work independently.
Young adults/persons offer:
I have solid experience of working with university aged (mature students and school leavers), secondary school aged adolesents as well as working with Women and Girls who have experienced sexual violence and gendered abuse 14 - 30 years of age.
Please do get in touch so we can discuss your concerns and make a starting plan for a child/young person you in difficulty.
