About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Counsellor, Therapeutic Coach, Clinical Trauma Professional and specialise as a Child & Adolescent Trauma Professional.
I engage with families to support the child or young person through their many transitions in life i.e., schools, classes, peer groups, family dynamics, college, university and employment.
I help facilitate the transition by being a confidential partner exploring disassociated behaviours by implementing a person-centered planning process.
Children & Young People Therapy
Listening, hearing and understanding your child or young person is my priority. Finding a 'way in' to their world to give them the permission to express themselves in a safe, compassionate and unique way, will produce a positive ripple effect for all.
With over 10 years' experience as a therapeutic counsellor working privately, within the NHS and in third sector organizations. I'm able to show appropriate empathy, humour, gain trust and join your amazing young person's journey to explore and identify their self-worth and confidence.
Together through, talking, drawing and playing I can offer a 'safe place' to investigate behaviours, thoughts, feelings and the impact they have on life. Actions and consequences are explored and questioned, offering options and choices within a confidential and therapeutic space.
Sessions can be homebased or in a therapy room. Partnership is encouraged with the school to mitigate disruption.
I am a qualified counsellor who believes the person holds all the answers. Trained as an integrative counsellor and coach I can adapt my skills to allow the person to grow and flourish.
Communication is encouraged in many ways including Talking Therapies, Play, Art and Writing.
Sessions usually last 50mins on a weekly basis at the same time, although bespoke plans can be agreed.
I can attend school to facilitate the sessions with agreement of all parties.
Families can work together or alone. One-time mediation sessions can be arranged.
I have an enhanced DBS and Indemnity Insurance.
