Therapy with me is an opportunity for each child or young person to explore and better understand themselves, grow in confidence and tap into inner resources. I believe we are all our own experts, and by placing each young person at the centre of our work together, I hope to empower them with a deeper awareness of their unique potential and open up the possibility for positive change.
I often bring more creative methods into the therapy room. Children relate to the world in very different ways; through play, art and creativity, I help them explore their feelings and tell their unique stories.
My work is primarily rooted in the person-centred approach: a talking therapy that puts the client at the centre of the counselling relationship. I also integrate aspects of psychodynamic and CBT therapies into my work; in this way my counselling is tailored to each individual young client; it’s as unique as they are.
If you or your child are feeling very distressed, despairing or suicidal and need immediate help, please take a look at the information on my urgent help page.
