About

Hi my name is Sarah. I work with children and young people. My focus when working with children and young people is to find a way to work with them to help with all of their areas of difficulty, from emotional to school and the variety of difficulties they can experience. I find that children and young people feel most comfortable when they have routine, so the children will always have the same time and day each week, this helps build rapport. I specialise in inclusive therapies which means I can use a variety of techniques which will best support each child individually. From behaviour, emotion, learning, social difficulties,
crisis, sensory and much more. I work with the child and family to best support everyone. It can be frightening seeing a child or young person struggling which is why I like to build a good relationship with parents or carers. This way we can all work together to support the young person. I can be there to offer advice and support for everyone involved.
I am registered with the National Counselling Society and throughout the sessions, I will be empathetic, non-judgemental, and I will listen to you to understand your needs and offer a person-centred Integrative approach over several sessions. The initial assessment will be face to face and allow you to meet with me and discuss your support needs further.
