MSc in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology / Diploma in Child Counselling
Are you worried about your young person and unsure what will help? Perhaps you’d love to find someone experienced who can connect with and guide your teenager through this difficult moment. With over a decade of experience supporting young people in private practice and schools, I empower teenagers experiencing stress, anxiety and low self-esteem to feel better, more confident and more at ease within themselves. I offer talking therapy, art and games, mindfulness and practical coping strategies in-person and online. Feel free to get in touch for a 30 min free phone consultation.
Throughout my career, I have had an ability to connect with young people, to let them know I really ‘get it’ and that they are not alone. Over the years I have added to my therapy toolbox, meaning I work integratively and adapt sessions to your young person’s individual needs. Teenagers can choose whether they prefer to talk, get creative, play games, work on practical coping skills or practise mindfulness. This tends to be an empowering process for them as they take the lead on their own healing journey. How therapy can help: * Feeling less overwhelmed and more able to cope * Growth in confidence and self-esteem * Feeling less sad, teary or lonely * Improved relationships with friends and family * Finding emotional balance (self-regulation) * Feeling more connected to the joy of life
A decade of working within schools as both a counsellor and teacher means I am very familiar with issues young people face today on a social, emotional and physical level. I also work with university students who have diagnosed mental health conditions meaning I am able to spot warning signs for more serious issues. If more specialist help is needed, I support parents through the referral process. I believe in research-based interventions and keep up-to-date on new therapy insights. I have a background in MSc Psychology adolescent research and have had my research referenced in a publication. I was fortunate enough to be asked to present my research at a national conference and have also led mental health training workshops for professionals.
