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. "

"Hi and welcome - when life feels difficult it can be a relief to talk to someone who is not connected to you, who will listen without judgement and without telling you what to do.  Exploring events, thoughts and feelings can help them become clearer; what can feel like a tangle in your head can start to become easier to process, accept or change and also lessen the feeling of carrying around a weight.  This can help you to feel that you are coping and moving forwards. Whether you want to focus on current challenges, explore the past, feel better about yourself and your life, or a combination of all of these, counselling can help."
