Confidential, therapeutic counselling
Counselling is for everyone. Many people benefit from an opportunity to have a healthy chat about anything at all. My role is simply to be warm and inviting, not to judge, to listen to all that you have to say, and to support you to feel brighter and more 'yourself' and at ease after every session.
I also have lots of experience in counselling young people who struggle with feeling nervous, sad, or out of sorts, and individuals who are having some difficulties at home with family, or friendships inside or outside of school or college. Counselling helps young people to find self-empowement, resources and realistic solutions to making the most of life.
I hold the necessary trainings in child and adolescent mental health and safeguarding and qualifications to work with young people ages 12 and over. I work according to the BACP's competency framework for providing humanistic counselling to young people. I have previously counselled young people in community mental health settings and as part of charitable initiatives.
We may meet together for 6 sessions or more. Each session is friendly and positive, and affirms strengths and possibilities. Parents and carers are welcome to get in touch. If you think that your child/young person, would benefit from talking, then please contact me.
