Child Therapy

I have worked with children and teenagers for over 15 years and can help to support through any difficulties they bring to the sessions, no matter how big or small.

As each child is unique, with their own personality and varying level of maturity, the counselling I provide will be tailored to their individual need, working with their strengths and helping them to explore and understand their struggles.

I also offer bereavement counselling to children who have lost loved ones, working through a carefully crafted programme to help them identify emotions associate with grief and giving.

Anxiety in Children

It is normal for children to be a little worried at home or at school, but not normal when that worry leads to irrational worry, fear and panic.

When this happens, a child withdraws from normal life, fears going to school and just wants to hide in their room. Counselling will help to alleviate this irrational fear and I will support your child to learn how to cope and manage their emotions.

Anxiety is a state of mind, that is a thought-response to something stressful happening in life combined with personality type. It is one of the most common mental health problems. It affects around 1 in 20 people and there were over 5 million cases of Anxiety in the UK last year.

Anxiety Treatment Helps:

  • Feeling worried

  • Physical Symptoms

  • Anxiety and Panic

  • Educational Worries

  • Feelings of depression

  • Coping with Stress

as they start the process of healing through a variety of ways including art and play therapy. I will support them in each session with anything they bring to each session, no matter how big or small.

Anger management

Some children become angry when they struggle to cope with strong feelings, either at home, in their personal life or at school or college. Anger becomes a problem when it is not managed or controlled properly and causes harm to themselves, property, and other people.
When Children are unhappy, or usually when they have a fear, they can begin to ‘act out’ in a problematic way or dis-functional behaviour such as Anger or Aggression.
Counselling can help them during this difficult time in their life.

Child Bereavement Counselling & Grief Therapy

Unfortunately, grief is an inevitable, inescapable part of life.

We will all lose someone we love at some point in our life, most of us at many points and the loss can often hit us harder than we expect.

Grief is often related to a death, but not always. People can grieve when:

  • losing their health

  • losing a pet

  • moving to a different home/ school

  • experiencing trauma

  • during divorce or change of relationship

  • changing routine

  • even loss of a toy

There are no rules about what is or is not okay to grieve. Everyone experiences loss in different ways and there is no set time limit to grieving. Some children can manage their grief all on their own, or with the support of loved ones, but they are starting to struggle, you may feel that Bereavement Counselling will help them cope better.

Bereavement counselling will help your child navigate you through the stages of grief, listening and supporting them.
