Child Counselling

Many young people are struggling with how they feel. They may be having problems with friends, family or school, they could be anxious, depressed, angry or scared and need to talk to someone, but find it difficult to talk to people they know.

Counselling is a safe place for a young person to talk, to feel heard and understood. It can help the person talk things through, support them without making them feel judged, and in confidence (unless they disclose that their personal safety is at risk) It also lets the person talk about how they feel, separate from school and home life and can help to get someone back to enjoying life.

There may be times when people do find it difficult to talk even in the counselling room which is OK. Being able to express feelings takes time but it can make a positive difference to young people’s lives and build solid foundations for their futures.

I have experience of working one to one with children in a school environment and hold a Certificate in Counselling Children.

I offer 1-2-1 private counselling for children from the age of 12 to 17.
