BACP registered child and adolescent therapist.
With 10 years experience of counselling children and young people predominantly in school settings, I am able to offer therapeutic counselling support to children aged 5-18years old who may be having any difficulties that is affecting their emotional well being. The counselling sessions will be a confidential session with your child exploring their difficulties. Please note that counselling is not about giving advice or offering a 'fix'. It is through exploration and discussion of their difficulties with a qualified professional at an in depth level that positive change occurs.
Before counselling begins I will meet with you and your child for an initial consultation. You will have an opportunity to discuss why you think counselling would be best for your child. Your child will also get an opportunity to speak freely about their difficulties as they will have the option to speak to me privately. If you do decide to go ahead with my counselling service then we will go through a contract which is basically the terms and conditions of my service. These cover issues of confidentiality- what your child discusses in the sessions would be confidential but I can feedback to you generally how the sessions went. If there are any safeguarding issues, namely I am concerned about your child's safety or is at risk of harm then I would disclose this to you and any relevant authorities if applicable. Other terms and conditions would be clearly detailed in the written contract.
My counselling room is based in North London.
Drawing and Talking
A child centred form of therapy
In my role as a qualified BACP registered children’s therapist, I am able to offer therapeutic one to one drawing and talking sessions. Having trained on how to use this child centered therapeutic tool, I would say drawing and talking sessions are ideal for the more introverted child. Sessions are one to one and 30 minutes long and focus on prevention and early intervention of mild mental health difficulties. It is a gentle and creative way to work with your child to meet their emotional needs. Drawing and talking works with your child’s inner world and puts no pressure or expectations on your child. It varies from the traditional ‘talking therapy’. For 30 minutes the child or young person, simply draws, no directed drawing at their pace and anything of their choice. The technique is based on Jungian and attachment (Bowlby) theories. Due to it’s gentle nature, a 12 week session is recommended with a review session in the 6th session.
