About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified counsellor & psychotherapist working within East Belfast. I work mainly adolescents and children (4+).
Adults, children and adolescents need a space to explore and express their experiences. However, for some, this tends to be more difficult as they struggle to understand what they're feeling, never mind find the words to describe them to another person.
Adults often find that when they voice their experiences, feelings, and worries, and confide in a professional who can offer support and help them make sense of these, they feel heard, understood, and often a little lighter from sharing the weight of these. It is the exact same for children and adolescents. They also deserve to feel heard, understood and a little lighter by sharing the weight of their thoughts so it's important that we are flexible to allow space for this, without expecting them to be able to articulate these in a way that makes sense to us.
My clients often engage in talking therapy, although I often invite clients of any age to engage in some creative therapies to help them understand their thoughts, experiences and inner self a bit better. This is done by creating a safe space to allow this exploration to take place, while helping them work through past and present experiences that may be impacting them in a negative way.
My professional, confidential service also allows children & adolescents to use play, art, drama, music therapeutically as well as/instead of talking, to tell and make sense of their story, thoughts, feelings and experiences.
