THERAPY FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Photo by Ben Wicks @profwicks
Growing up isn't easy to do. Sometimes children and young people need a little support to navigate the challenges of development and the difficulties that are thrown at them as they go. I consider it a privilege to help them on their way.
I am trained and experienced in working with children and young people. I adapt my therapeutic approach to suit the developmental stage and needs of my younger clients. For example, much of the communication in children's therapy is non-verbal. Therefore I utilise toys, props, written exercises and art and craft materials to aid the therapeutic process.
I have helped young people with difficulties including:
Low mood and depression
Low self-esteem and poor body image
Perfectionism and exam-related stress
The effects of abuse and trauma
Parental separation and changes in family structure
Please get in touch to discuss your child's individual needs.
