Emotional and psychological difficulties can occur at any age and growing up can be challenging, it can often leave children feeling out of control. Neurodivergent children may have the additional barrier of being unable to communicate their problems which may further heighten anxieties and leave them feeling unable to cope, this is often expressed through challenging behaviours, withdrawal, eating disorders or self-harm. Reaching out for support can be overwhelming but it is the first step in helping to understand behaviours, feelings and emotions.
Specialising in ASD, ADHD, anxiety and depression, helping children/young people to make sense of their experiences. Led by the client, the approach is always uniquely adapted. Using a wide range of resources to play, make art, tell stories, play music or talk promotes discussions that explore feelings and helps them to better understand their emotions.
Sometimes it can be hard talking to family; children/young people worry about the upset it may cause. Talking to someone completely separate helps to take away some of the pressure. It is important to find a counsellor, who the child/young person feels comfortable and connects with. To get a sense of who I am and how I can help call for a free consultation.
