About me and my therapy practice
Thankyou for visiting my profile. I’m Victoria, a specialist Child & Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I work with children and teenagers aged 4-18. Growing up can be so hard and life can throw many challenges at our youngsters. I support young people through issues such as bereavement, family breakdown, abuse, trauma and emotional or behavioural difficulties. Previously a primary school teacher and Special Educational Needs coordinator, I have 18 years’ experience in supporting young people and their families.
Practice descriptionI provide a non-judgemental space where young people can explore their emotions and express them safely. My practise is rooted in play, art and creativity- all wonderful metaphors through which children can naturally express their inner world. I offer adolescents a wide variety of approaches such as talk therapy, art therapy, imagery and sandtray therapy.
My first sessionThe 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. I offer a free initial chat and a half price initial session so that you can get a feel for the support I can offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
