About me and my therapy practice
Worried about your child's anxiety, low self-esteem or angry moods ? Feeling exhausted and helpless at times?
I am a fully qualified, dedicated counsellor, experienced and passionate about working creatively with children from the age of four. I use elements of play and art therapy, drawing on my extensive experience as a primary school counsellor. In addition I have worked as a counsellor for Macmillan and as a volunteer with Samaritans. I aim to provide a safe, therapeutic environment in which your child can be themselves and speak freely. Beginning to recognize and work through difficult emotions, often for the first time, results in increased emotional balance and confidence.
My person-centred approach is non-directive, child-led and very gentle in order to establish a therapeutic and nurturing relationship. Your child sets the pace, enabling trust and a sense of control. With my guidance, offering un-conditional empathy and the absence of judgements, he/she is given the space and time to feel comfortable to share difficult emotions and work through them.
Let me help your child to discover their own resources so they can feel more emotionally secure, more confident and more ale to cope with change. Having a confidential space to play, draw and talk without worrying about family/friends' emotional responses leaving everyone less anxious and stressed as well as more in control.
I offer introductory sessions to get to know you and your child where both of you will have the chance to ask any questions you might have. These are charged at a 50% discount to the usual £40 fee and are without any obligation.
Please feel free to contact me for an informal chat, I am looking forward to hearing from you.
In light of the on-going crisis, I also currently offer short-term telephone support sessions specifically for parents. These are designed to help you during this stressful time and provide some ideas on how to best handle your children's worries about the future.
