About me and my therapy practice
ONLINE SESSIONS AVAILABLE
My experience in secondary schools working with children and young people, firstly as a special needs TA, then Schools Counsellor has given me an understanding of how challenging life can be for our children. Often parents/carers find themselves feeling helpless as they see their child experience anxiety, low self esteem, self harm, isolation, suicidal ideation...
Counselling may help children and young people to re-connect with themselves, find their confidence and help themselves to cope in the challenging world that we live in. All sessions are confidential (with the exception of safeguarding/significant risk issues) which may help your child share without the edge of upsetting or burdening those that they care for.
I have been a practicing counsellor for children and young people in schools, agency settings and in private practice for over 4 years. My specialist qualification is in Children and Young People and I am an accredited member of the BACP, demonstrating a higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner.
My practice is not exclusive to Children and Young people, I also offer counselling to adults through my private practice and currently as an outreach counsellor for Essex County Council.
My first session
The first step is to come along for an initial assessment. This is like an information gathering process for both of us and lasts for up to an hour and a half. It's an important part of the process that you feel comfortable with me and the environment, so after this you can decide of you want to move forward with more session or not.
If you do, you can have as many or as little sessions that we feel are appropriate.
