I can offer a safe, confidential space to support your child in overcoming difficulties.
My name is Sam, I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I understand how difficult the decision to seek counselling can be through my own experience. You may feel unsure whether it's the right move for your child and how long they can continue to cope on their own. So many questions you may have, you may feel you and your child are a burden to family and friends and don't know who to turn to. Worried about returning to school/college or starting a new one, impacts of Covid, social isolation, family issues and relationships causing anxieties and stress which may affect day to day life, I can help.

Life can feel exhausting when you or your child, are struggling with difficult emotions, had difficult past experiences, a recent diagnosis or health emergency. I understand what that feels like and the sense of loss, isolation and feeling lost with how to manage and be strong. You or your child might be struggling with low mood, flashbacks, self harm or suicidal thoughts and feelings. When you feel out of control it can be hard to manage family life, intense frustration and difficult behaviours. I can help you with feeling lighter, more connected to others and confident with daily life through conversation and creativity.

I have successfully supported adults, children and young people to find their own solutions for overcoming unhealthy beliefs and behaviours.
Reaching out for help takes courage, particularly if your self-esteem and confidence are low. But, if you want to make changes in your life then you may need support. People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons; anxiety, relationship issues, depression, bereavement, trauma etc. Perhaps you feel inhibited, have unhealthy patterns of behaviour or your emotions may be hijacking your ability to respond and keep perspective. Whatever the reason, the chances are you are feeling deeply distressed. You don’t have to keep struggling alone. Together we can work out what is causing you to feel threatened, overwhelmed or empty.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Leeds, 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 Leeds 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.
