NEW! 2-SESSION CONSULTATIONS
Brief, early -intervention support for parents of primary school children
Do you have concerns about your child's mental health? Have you noticed some worrying behaviours, seen changes in sleep patterns or noticed your child has become withdrawn, anxious or angry?
Would you like some advice on how to talk to your children about death, divorce or change?
It is normal to have times when family life is hard. Growing up is never easy and it can be difficult to navigate the ups and downs of parenthood. Sometimes a little bit of outside help can make all the difference.
As an HCPC registered arts therapist and systemically trained practitioner, I can help you and you family make small changes that will have a positive impact on everyone's well being. I offer brief, solution-focused sessions and, if necessary, can guide you towards professionals who can offer ongoing help.
A little bit of EQ goes a long way...
I offer sessions for children and adolscents of all ages. The work can be short term, long term or open-ended. It is often creative but sometimes we just talk - my approach is tailored around the needs of your child.
I offer sessions on a termly basis, to fit around your schedule, and can provide short term interventions during school holidays for children at boarding school or students at university.
I specialise in working with families who are going through divorce and separation. This can be a very complicated and painful time for parents and children. Having the chance to talk, negotiate and recontract can make the world of difference.
Sometimes we might all meet together and at other times I might see only one or two members of the group. Don't worry about the logistics, we can discuss that when we first get together.
I offer early morning and evening sessions to fit around the schedules of working parents.
Even with the best of intentions and a world of self-help advice at your fingertips, parenting can feel overwhelming. When you've exhausted all your techniques and run out of options, I can help support and inspire you with creative ideas to bring about long term change.
I offer brief interventions to help you and your family devise new strategies to manage behaviour.
