About me and my therapy practice
Counselling for Children and Young People (6-18 Years)
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. Taking the first steps into looking for some support & choosing a counsellor can be a daunting experience. It is important that the counsellor is right for you & you feel you can work together, for this reason I offer a free initial 30-minute consultation session where you have the opportunity to discuss the issues that have led you to seek counselling. At the end of this session we can decide whether we can work together. This can take place over the telephone or face to face if you prefer.
I am a BACP registered Person Centred Counsellor and Cognitive Behaviour Therapist specialising in working therapeutically with children & young people. I have worked with children & young people for 25 years in various settings and for last 12 years I have worked as a counsellor; As a children & young people’s counsellor for the NHS offering trauma informed therapy to help deal with the impact of rape, sexual abuse & sexual assault, I also have many years’ experience of working in primary and secondary schools both as a school counsellor and also managing counselling projects for Place2Be (children's mental health charity).
My training as a therapist enables me to draw on several approaches to ensure that the therapy is suitable for the person and their unique situation.
• BSc (Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy
• Certificate in Counselling Children & Young People
• Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
• Diploma in Theory & Practice of Counselling (Person-Centred)
