About me and my therapy practice
Hi… I’m Victoria, a specialist Child Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working with children aged 3- 12. Growing up can be hard at the best of times, but these unprecedented times have thrown an unimaginable number of challenges at our youngsters. I offer a safe place and secure relationship in which children can reduce their overwhelm, unjumble their thoughts and explore the feelings inside. I specialize in working through play, art and creativity- all developmentally natural forms of expression of a child’s inner world. I am passionate about early intervention, giving children a positive, non-threatening experience of seeking support.
Alongside this child-led expression of emotion, when appropriate I utilize my background as a Primary Teacher and Special Educational Needs Coordinator to support children's psycho-education - increasing their own knowledge and skills around the science of their emotions and their effects on the brain and body, emotional literacy and emotional regulation.
My first session
The positive relationship I build between myself and my clients is at the very heart of my work - it’s so important that you and your child feel totally comfortable with your therapist. Call me for a free initial chat so that you can get a feel for the support I can offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
