About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified and highly professional person-centred counsellor, specifically trained in working with children and young people aged from 5 years old upwards. As well as working in private practice, I have experience of working within local primary and secondary schools, offering one-to-one counselling sessions for a broad range of presenting issues including anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties and identity.
I also have experience of group work, offering therapeutic support for bereavement and trauma and facilitation of a therapeutic story group within primary schools.
My way of working is person-centred which is firmly rooted in the belief that it is the unique relationship between the child/young person and their counsellor that is at the heart of the therapy. Through offering a safe, confidential space that is free of judgement within which the child or young person feels listened to and understood, the child/young person may feel empowered to express their feelings and experiences more openly and freely.
As well as talking, I am also able to work in a person-centred way with art and image. Working with art and image can be a powerful way of communicating when it is often difficult to find the right words or understanding of a situation or experience is not quite clear. With younger children, I offer person-centred play therapy, enabling the child to communicate with me in a way that is age appropriate and natural to them.
