I am an integrative counsellor this enables me to draw upon many different therapeutic approaches to help young people understand their emotions.
In a nurturing atmosphere, I adapt to the needs of each individual where they lead the session and tell their story through the metaphor of play. Therapy takes place in a confidential setting. The work can be either short or long term. I work creatively with young people at their pace accepting what they bring. I offer a therapeutic space where I listen and we can explore difficult feelings together.
Seeing a counsellor can help a child or adolescent cope with difficult emotions and challenging behaviours. Over time they will understand and make sense of their feelings and experiences and build resilience and confidence.
My work is underpinned by the BACP counselling profession ethical framework and guidelines.
