Counselling & Coaching
I know you want to see your children thrive in this modern world, that you're trying your very best and that it is so painful to watch them struggle. But honestly, it's not easy to know how to help them, right? You're probably getting through day by day and wondering if this is how it's supposed to be because it just doesn't feel right.
We're all individuals with different experiences and there are likely many factors contributing to your child's emotions and behaviours. Generally, I see many children affected by past traumas, unsuitable parenting approaches and the many influences of our modern lifestyle. The good news is that it can be better, for all of you.
Whether your child is struggling in school, with friends, with anxiety, angry outbursts, low self-esteem, emotional meltdowns, attention deficit, learning difficulties, unwanted behaviour, school refusal, low mood, hyperactivity, cooperation, life changes or something else, I'm here to help.
I've developed a unique approach, using what I've seen works, to help us understand your child's needs and maximise the positive change we create as a team, so you can rise up together.
Here's how it works.
Initial Phone Consultation
I'll call you for a free, 30-minute no-obligation phone consultation at a time that suits you, in which we'll discuss your child's current situation, history and specific needs. You can ask any questions you might have and I'll let you know how I can help.
Creative Therapy for Your Child
I work with your child, aged 3-12, in enjoyable, weekly sessions.
Using Creative Therapies such as Sandplay, Art, Play and Drama, I help them express and process their inner feelings and experiences symbolically. I also work with them more directively to connect with, experience and release their emotions, examine their self-beliefs and build skills.
These types of approaches are so effective because they provide access to the unconscious mind, allowing children to communicate through their language of creativity so we can better understand what's going on for them and what they need from us.
Working with children has always come naturally to me and kids enjoy coming to see me with my authentic, welcoming manner and cupboards bursting with creative treasures.
Heart-Centred Coaching for You
I greatly admire every parent who walks through my door because they recognise the incredible influence they have on their children's lives and are willing to step up to help them thrive, in a modern world that sadly often does the opposite.
I work with you (either both parents together or one-on-one) at regular intervals, to offer a fresh perspective, identify unconscious patterns, create a solid, tailored plan to suit your family's needs and to support you on your journey.
My conscious approaches are based upon the latest evidence-based and trauma-informed research, which address the cause of behaviours -as opposed to many outdated, mainstream approaches that only try to 'fix' them superficially- to ensure lasting change. We'll focus on building up key skills to help reach your specific goals and I'll check in with you between sessions to give you extra tips, insights and support.
This is the start of something big.
