About me and my therapy practice

I am trained as a children and young person's counsellor.

I am an integrative counsellor. This means I can tailor the counselling style to fit the individual needs and preferences of a child or young person.

Attachment theory informs the way I develop a safe and trusting relationship with a child.

Most of my work is child led play therapy informed by Person-Centred and Psycho-Analytical approaches. In a safe environment, alongside an adult they trust, children express their inner feelings and thoughts through the metaphor of play.

I also use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution focussed or psycho-educational techniques with older children. This takes the form of more traditional talking therapy. It allows young people to explore and understand feelings and reactions to problems they face. It helps them to develop resilience by changing unhelpful behaviour.
