As a qualified counsellor I offer a safe space for your child to explore issues that are affecting them and could be impacting family life. Sometimes young people find it difficult to talk with friends or family members, not because they don’t want to, but often because they are connected to you and don’t want to upset or frighten you with what is happening for them. This is where counselling can help. Being impartial allows the young person the opportunity to open up without fear of being judged or ‘told off’, they have the freedom to explore their concerns in a safe, confidential space.
Having worked for numerous years as a registered nurse and then midwife; I then spent over 10 years working in educational settings with young people who were struggling with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and finding being at school difficult to engage in. I have also supported young people who have experienced sexual abuse and rape empowering them to take back control and gain some understanding as to what has happened. Through all of my previous experiences I am able to empower young people to discuss and explore what is going on for them.
I’m not here to fix, nor is my role to tell your child what they need to do. My role is to allow each individual the time and space to make sense of their world at this time, explore strategies that might help them cope better and enable them to take control of /for themselves and become the best person they can be.
If you'd like to get in touch I can answer any other questions you might have.
