I offer confidential counselling for adults, children and teenagers, where life has become confusing or difficult to manage.
My approach is Integrative, which means that I draw on Person Centred (how you are feeling now), CBT (goal/change focused) and Psychodynamic (how the past might be effecting you now).
I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which uses tools to help you unhook from anxiety, and live the life you want with your values in mind.
With young people, I work creatively to suit the age and development. I may use art, sand-trays and with other tools to explore feelings. I can also offer practical strategies for reducing anxiety, panic, and other difficult to manage emotions. Some young people like to just talk too, this will always be their choice.
I have over 15 years experience working with families, where children and young people are experiencing varying degrees of distress, and before qualifying as a therapist worked for many years within the field of mental health and emotional well-being.
I have experience supporting children and families with additional needs, including behavioural difficulties, anger issues, autism and ADHD. As well as offering one to one counselling with children and teens, I also work with parents and children together, if this best suits your needs.
