If you are interested in the counselling I can offer or want to find out more, you can contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation. This will allow you to tell me a little bit about what brings you to counselling.
I will email you an enquiry form to complete and email it back with all necessary details for counselling.
If you are a parent/carer contacting requiring counselling for you child or young people, I will arrange a parent consultation. This will allow you to see if I am the best fit to work with your child or young person. It will be a space for me to introduce myself and explain the counselling process and what I can offer. This will be the time to explore the reasons for accessing counselling in more detail. There is a fee for parent consultations.
If you are over 18 and you would like a consultation, please do get in touch.
If you decide I am the right counsellor to work with your child or young person, I will carry out an assessment/introductory session with them. This will allow time to work out what areas they want to focus the counselling on. For young children this will be creatively engaging in conversation to allow them to build the trust that is needed. With a teenager, I will provide a calm space to discuss what is difficult for them, understanding their life styles, home life, school life and everything that comes with being a teenager.
After the assessment, we can arrange weekly counselling sessions. Each session will start with a check in to assess the week and create a focus for the session. The session will finish with a check out to debrief the session, mainly with a game to wind down.
Just like most experiences in life, counselling comes to an end as well. Working with children and young people, it is really important that this ending is worked up to so they are able to finish counselling in the best place possible.
