I work therapeutically with children (aged 11 +) young people and parents. It is useful l to begin with a session where I will meet with parent/s to gather more information about their child and discuss if therapy would be beneficial. Then it is helpful to begin with 6 sessions, to carry out an assessment period. If I feel that your child would benefit from another professional with different expertise then I will I would share that information with you. I offer support with or without a formal diagnosis. The fee for parenting sessions is the same as individual sessions for your child/adolescent.
Parenting skills will not be judged as I understand how difficult it is to parent a child or adolescent who is in emotional distress, however I may make some suggestions that could be helpful. I aim to provide a warm, non-judgemental and supportive approach.
I am also a trained and experienced adult therapist. I work with individuals who may be struggling to cope with some aspect of their lives. I can also provide help for parents who are having to manage and support a family member who is experiencing mental health difficulties.
FAMILY AND PARENTING
Family life and parenting can be incredibly challenging and sometimes your family may need some help from professionals who are not directly involved.
This intervention invites family members, couples and people who care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and feelings in a safe and respectful way.
The sessions aim to help family members understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships.
