  • Bullying
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Emotional problems
  • Behavioural problems
  • Literacy and numeracy problem
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Learning difficulties
  • Eating disorders
  • Developmental issues

Counselling for children

How I counsel a child will depend on their age, developmental stage and specific difficulties. I use different methods to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties, such as play and art. Talking about feelings in relation to an activity can give great insight into the inner world of a child.

Older children may prefer talking therapy or a mixture of both. My counselling approach will depend on the individual. The aim of counselling is to help them cope better with their emotions and feelings.

Having a child in therapy

It can be difficult as a parent to watch your child struggle with difficult feelings, especially when you are unsure how to help them.

It can also stir up a range of complex feelings with parents when they decide to seek some help for their child.

 

Children who begin to make sense of their emotional life can in turn establish better relationships with those they are close to.

Prior to beginning any individual work with a child a few appointments can be set aside for a parent to explore any concerns if needed.
