If you are a parent and you are looking for support for your child things may be very difficult for your family right now and you may not know which way to turn. Counselling can help.
Ever increasing pressure on children and young people in school, from peers and through the media, in particular social media has ensured that there has never been such an unprecedented need to provide support and help for children and young people.
Counselling can be effective in alleviating and preventing the escalation of mental health issues, providing children with the emotional intelligence and resilience to cope in difficult times. There is significant evidence that accessing counselling for children and young people can also support their concentration, motivation, learning and achievement.
As a counsellor I am committed to promoting, protecting and improving children and young peoples mental health.
I work with young people who are experiencing emotional issues, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bereavement and many other distressing issues including young people who self-harm.
I also work with young people around particular times of stress such as the lead up to exam season which can be complicatedly stressful and full of and anxiety, I help to build resilience and equip themselves with tools to draw on for not only during their exams and schooling but also for the rest of their lives.
If your would like to explore working with me to support your child or young person please do get in contact and I can answer any questions you may have and we can discuss an initial appointment where I would meet with both you and your son or daughter.
