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
I offer support for specific issues and long-term challenges including:
Worrying and anxiety
Low mood and depression
Bullying and friendship issues
Challenges at school
Significant life events
Having a sibling or parent with high needs
Difficult feelings, thoughts or memories
