About My Profession
I offer a wide range of art and play materials
I have a certificate in Children's Counselling through the Charity Place2Be. Working with children as young as 5, I give each child a safe place to explore their feeling and the freedom to use art, sand trays, puppets or play.
I gauge every session on how the child would like the therapy to proceed. The child and I are equals in the room. Some children like the direct approach to just talk while colouring or playing and some children like to use metaphors to allow their feelings to come through. Either is fine and I keep the space safe to allow them to do so.
On the first session, I allow the parent in for a proportion of the sessional time, depending on the child's age. This gives you a chance to meet me and you can ask any questions you may have. As all sessions are confidential, I will only update you if I have a concern or the child expresses they want you to know something. Sessions are 50 Minutes unless we decide in the assessment that your child would find it hard to engage for this length of time. I will then adjust the time and the fee to suit them.
Please be aware that I do not have a waiting room.
I hold a enhanced DBS and follow the Child Protection Regulations.
