Worried about your child's or own anxiety, low self-esteem or angry moods? Unsure how to help, leaving you feeling exhausted and helpless? I am a qualified integrative counsellor, experienced and passionate about working creatively with adults and children from the age of four. I use elements of play and art therapy, drawing from my experience as a Social Worker and a counsellor. I aim to provide a safe, therapeutic environment in which you and your child can be themselves and speak freely. Beginning to recognise and work through difficult emotions, often for the first time, results in increased emotional balance and confidence.

My person-centred approach is non-directive, child-led and gentle in order to establish a therapeutic and nurturing relationship. You and your child set the pace, enabling trust and a sense of control. With my guidance, offering unconditional empathy, he/she is given the space and time to feel comfortable to share difficult emotions and work through them.

Let me help you/your child so they can feel more emotionally secure, more confident and better able to cope with change. Having a confidential space to play, draw and talk without worrying about family/friends' emotional response will help to restore a more harmonious family life, leaving everyone less anxious and more in control.
