About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes, we all need a little extra support to guide us through difficult times in our lives – this of course includes children and young people. You may be encountering challenges and would benefit form talking in a safe and comfortable environment to explore your feelings and worries, which is a service I specialise in. 

I offer a non-judgemental counselling service in a warm and friendly atmosphere suited to young people. Through my work and methods, children can relate to me and I strive to do my very best for them. I have been counselling children and young people for eight years as a recognised member of the BACP, and have worked with children and young people in various capacities for over 20 years, mainly in a school environment. 

Problems I specialise in working with include anger, stress, anxiety, lack of confidence, low self esteem, bereavement, attachment issues, identity issues, gender issues, friendship problems, behavioural problems, relationships, sibling and social issues, as well as family conflict and coping skills. 

I'm a trained psychodynamic counsellor but have plenty of knowledge and experience with various other counselling approaches. This means I am able to adapt my counselling style to suit individual needs (for example I use play and art when working with young children to support them effectively). 

I am ready and available to help you and your child at your convenience. You can reach me via telephone or email.
