I have particular interest in working with children and teenagers and helping family dynamics to flow better, whether that’s difficult parent and child relationships or siblings.
When was the last time you had someone’s full attention for nearly an hour? Felt like you had a safe space to mull, wonder, ponder and explore your thoughts and feelings? Most people don’t have that day-to-day, it’s my passion to be able to facilitate that space for you, to enable you to move forwards and break free from difficult times.

Life can throw up difficulties at any time, a difficult childhood, trauma, or a relationship breakdown. You or your child may have experienced bullying, difficulties fitting in or managing social and cultural expectations. These experiences can lead to the development of anxiety and low mood, self esteem issues, and other mental health difficulties. Therapy can help you to understand yourself, and the impact of your thoughts and behaviours more deeply.

We learn to adapt to situations by developing coping mechanisms to help us through negative experiences and manage difficult emotions, but these coping mechanisms and thought patterns can also hold us back from future happiness.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Bournemouth, ENG provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Bournemouth build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
