Do you have concerns about your child’s behaviour, self-esteem, anger, anxiety, or general state of mind? It’s not uncommon. And it can cause a lot of stress to your whole family. A little help at the right time can make a big difference. I’ll chat with you at the beginning of each session, then work individually with your child, then meet with you to discuss next steps. In the first session, I focus on helping your child feel at ease, starting to build a relationship and discovering what your child wants to get out of seeing me. Then, as we work together, I like to make the sessions light-hearted, positive and fun.

My approach combines professionalism, honesty, warmth and humour, without judgement. I take a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing, exploring lifestyle and health, as well as emotional factors. During the first session, I will spend time getting to know you and what has brought you to counselling. We will then identify what the goals of therapy will be, and together, build a strong relationship in order to help you achieve these. I will take into consideration who you are as a person, what your needs are and tailor an individual approach.

It can be really difficult to share your deepest concerns, fears and issues. It takes a lot of courage to make yourself vulnerable in this way; trusting another person with your ‘stuff’ can feel deeply uncomfortable and risky. With this in mind, I do my best to build a relationship with you (and your partner or partners) – in which you feel safe, accepted and respected. No matter why you have come to therapy, or what you may share during each session, my role is to try to help you – not judge you.
