Children and Young People come in to counselling for a wide variety of reasons. Perhaps there are difficulties in family life, such as conflict or parental separation which a child is struggling to come to terms with. Or perhaps school life is a challenge and is causing stress or anxiety. Sometimes friendships can be a struggle and children feel lonely or lacking in confidence. Whatever the reason, I have seen counselling offer a unique opportunity to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours without judgement. Counselling can offer hope, help to discover strength and build resilience to cope with life's challenges. 

I have experience of working with:

  • Parental separation

  • Family conflict

  • Parental Drug or Alcohol Use

  • Bullying

  • Bereavement

  • Domestic Abuse

  • Childhood abuse/neglect

  • Depression and Anxiety

  • Low self-esteem 

  • Trauma 

  • Self Harm

  • Children who are Looked After or Accommodated 

  • Children in Kinship Care

I am trained in psychodynamic counselling which means that I aim to help children and young people understand what might be going on below the surface. Through play, art making and talking I help children to make sense of their feelings, experiences and behaviours and as a result encounter healing and positive change.      

I see children weekly at the same time each week. The number of sessions offered will depend on each child's individual circumstances.
