About

As a therapist, I love working with children: learning about their families, their strengths, challenges, the problems which are worrying them and affecting their behavior. In our sessions we play and create things together, as play is the medium of communication for children in therapy, equivalent to adults' verbal engagement. Through talk and play, we develop an authentic emotional connection, in order to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Trust and collaboration are essential to the work of therapy for children as well as adults.
As a therapist, I love working with children: learning about their families, strengths, challenges and worries. Play is the medium of communication for children in therapy, equivalent to adults' verbal interactions. In our sessions we play, create and talk in order to understand and improve problem situations and behavior.
During this very difficult time, adults and children alike are struggling within the changed conditions of our lives. it seems more urgent than ever to build understanding of who we are and the qualities we would like to develop within in order to cope more effectively. Please get in touch to arrange a phone consultation and we'll take it from there.

Eileen Fitzgerald's Groups

Groups for Children of Divorced Parents

Children whose parents are divorced meet with others of similar age to share feelings, experiences and strategies. Meetings, now on Zoom, are modeled on the Banana Splits program, which is used in many schools. Parent groups are also available. The current virtual group for children of divorced parents meets at 4pm on Fridays.
