Therapies for Children & Teenagers
Child Counselling / Psychotherapy

Child and Adolescent counsellors and psychotherapists are trained to look beneath the surface of difficult emotions, behaviours and relationships to help children, adolescents and their families to understand themselves and their problems. They often carefully observe a child’s behaviour or play to find what the child might be trying to communicate.  

Child and Adolescent counsellors and psychotherapists work to develop and sustain therapeutic relationships with children and adolescents in order to help them make sense of their experiences.  They help young people to learn how to express their emotions in a smooth way, rather than a disturbed way.  This can help a child to get back to the normal process of child development.

As an integrative child and adolescent counsellor I work using various approaches and techniques that I adapt individually to the needs of my clients. These include elements of art and play therapy, person-centered approaches, attachment theory, body psychotherapy and psychoeducation. I also incorporate elements of mindfulness and breath work into the sessions. I specialise in working with young people and support them with issues such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, identity issues, negative self and body image, low self-esteem, aggressive behaviour, bullying, and help them with various transitions that they experience during teenagehood and early adulthood. I also have an interest in trauma related work, childhood sexual abuse and the body-mind connection. I see counselling as a collaborative process between the counsellor and the client and see myself as an ally who supports the young person in understanding themselves and their behaviours better.

Sessions last 50 minutes. I meet clients for an initial assessment session before starting counselling. Sessions can be for a short term (a minimum of 6 sessions) to long term (40 sessions or more).

I have worked with children and young people most of my professional life - initially as a teacher/educator and currently as a child and adolescent counsellor in schools and charities. I greatly enjoy supporting young people and their wisdom never ceases to astonish me.
