Benefits of Counselling

Counselling offers the consistency of a regular time to process emotions within the context of a trusting relationship with an adult. I believe that all children and young people deserve to feel valued and supported. Building emotional health through childhood and adolescence can help provide the foundation for long-term wellbeing. 

Counselling is bespoke and unique to each individual. Some of the benefits may include:


  • Feeling heard and less alone

  • Creating coherent narratives about difficult experiences

  • Helping feelings become more manageable

  • Building self-esteem and positive sense of self

  • Promoting regulation of the nervous system

  • Improving emotional awareness and communication

  • Developing emotional resilience 


Specific Concerns

I offer support for specific issues and long-term challenges including:


  • Worrying and anxiety

  • Low mood and depression

  • Low self-esteem

  • Bereavement

  • Loss

  • School transitions

  • Bullying and friendship issues

  • Self-harm

  • Stress

  • Challenges at school

  • Significant life events

  • Family conflict

  • Having a sibling or parent with high needs

  • Difficult feelings, thoughts or memories
