"Do you feel stuck? Sad? Angry? or Anxious? Are you a parent worried about your child or teen? Life can throw up difficulties at any time. For example, a difficult childhood, trauma, the loss of a loved one or a relationship breakdown. Children and teens (and adults) may experience bullying, difficulties fitting in or managing social and cultural expectations. These experiences can lead to the development of Low Mood, Anxiety and other mental health conditions and difficulties. I am experienced in using Humanistic approaches and Evidence Based approaches to treat complex issues, across all ages. "
