COUNSELLING FOR CHILDREN

Counselling for children aged 4 years and older is provided in a safe and non-threatening environment.


I use a play-based approach for younger children which allows the child to explore and process difficult and challenging life experiences in a safe way.

For older children and adolescents, I work according to the young person's individual needs.  This may involve talk therapy or I  may incorporate talk therapy with other creative tools such as art or games.

I have a special interest in working with children who have experienced:

  • Traumatic or distressing events 

  • Anxiety

  • Family separations and are having difficulty adjusting to the changes

  • school avoidance

  • Substance misuse in the home eg parents who have been or are dependent on drugs or alcohol.​

For children who have experienced distressing or traumatic events, I am also able to provide EMDR therapy for children and adolescents.
