Are you a parent looking for support for your child? Perhaps you have noticed that they are struggling in their daily life, that they no longer engage in hobbies or family activities, or that they are finding school difficult. Perhaps you are finding their behaviour difficult to manage and this is starting to impact the whole family. Or maybe you simply want to understand your child better. I work with a range of difficulties, from everyday problems through to more complex issues related to mental health and child development. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and I will adapt my approach to suit you, your child and your family.

Worrying about how your child/young person is doing can be overwhelming.
Sometimes it’s difficult to know where you can turn to talk through family issues and get some help. Often those closest to you are very involved themselves. Or you don’t want to worry them. It may be that you don’t know where to turn. I am a highly experienced Child Psychotherapist. I offer therapy and mental health support for children and young people and consultation to the people who care for them. Therapy provides a safe space to explore issues that might be troubling someone, be it anxiety, stress and unhappiness; separation and loss; worries about school; gender and sexuality; low self esteem or any number of other things.

Whether young or old, sometimes people need help to unpick their thoughts and feelings and start to make sense of their relationships, behaviours, coping strategies and attachments. Patterns which start early on in life can become troublesome or dysfunctional.

I am a HCPC ( Health and Care Professions Council) and BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists) registered Art Psychotherapist who specialises in working with children and young people. I provide a safe, confidential space for children to explore their inner world through art making and creativity. Children often struggle to express themselves through words. Art can act as a medium through which a child communicates their thoughts and feelings in a more natural, less direct way. These feelings and experiences can then be thought about and processed safely.

Hi I'm Zoe and I'm a qualified person-centred therapist specialising in child and adolescent mental health and well-being. I have extensive experience working with children and young people - by using creative techniques such as puppet/figure work, sand trays and paints/clay it allows me to gain insight into the child's world and identify areas they need support with when verbal communication is difficult. This in turn can help to build confidence, strengthen self-esteem and lessen anxiety. As a result children can find themselves in a better place to engage within the classroom, impacting positively on educational attainment.

Hello, I am Rebecca, and I am an Art Psychotherapist and also an EMDR trainee. Together we can build a therapy to suit your needs and begin where you most feel comfortable. Art therapy provides another tool to express ourselves when words are too difficult. Using art materials whilst we speak can feel non-intrusive and help you talk about how you are feeling. EMDR can help in processing distressing experiences, loss and traumatic memories. I provide individual therapy for adults, young people and children.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Brighton, 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 Brighton 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.
