About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Caroline and I am a fully qualified Child & Adolescent counsellor. I see children and young people (up to the age of 18) for regular weekly sessions in my practice, specifically designed for working with children and young people. I also have a range of experience of working therapeutically with children in primary and secondary school settings and work 3 days a week for a school counselling service. My approach is child-centred and integrative; I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques (person-centred approach, psychodynamic thinking, attachment theory and systemic thinking) to meet the needs of each individual client. I aim to establish a trusting, genuine and good therapeutic relationship with each child and young person to enable them to express their feelings and emotions through play, creative work and talking to find better ways of managing difficulties.
For children and young people:
I offer talking, play and sand tray therapy as well as the use of resources such creative materials, therapeutic resources and games for them to enable them to express themselves and find better ways of managing difficulties and be curious about their overall mental health and wellbeing.
I offer a space to meet with parents/carers to talk about their worries around their child/young person. This might be a one off consultation or more regular ones to support with any parenting issue affect the parent/child relationship.
My first session
Following the free telephone discussion I invite the parent/carer and their child in for an assessment meeting. This is charged at the standard session rate. It is here that we will talk and think about what is going on for the child or young person, learn more about the child's systems and what to expect from counselling. The purpose of this assessment is to help inform our work together, should you choose to continue with the therapeutic process.
