Children find it very difficult to express how they feel and might need quite specialised help and support to articulate what is troubling them.
 
They may seem like they are being naughty, aggressive or very quiet and shy but they are trying to tell you that something is not feeling quite right.  Even as adults we don’t often know how to do this!
Counselling for children and adolescents can help unpick what is going on for them.  
This can be through play therapy,* the use of art, mindfulness* or just having someone to talk to in the right environment.
 
*PLAY THERAPY is a form of counseling or psychotherapy that uses play to communicate with and help people, especially children, to prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. This is thought to help them towards better social integration, growth and development, emotional modulation, and trauma resolution.
 
*MINDFULNESS can help children improve their abilities to pay attention, to calm down when they are upset and to make better decisions. In short, it helps with emotional regulation and cognitive focus.
 
I charge £25 per session and recommend at least 6 or more sessions in the first instance.  I recommend weekly sessions and the length of these depend on the presenting issues.

Each session is between 40 to 60 minutes in duration.
 
The first session will be an initial assessment and will be charged at the same rate unless stated otherwise.  In this session, the parent will attend so that we can discuss what the issues are.  As well as fill out contact sheets and other relevant details.
 
All materials supplied such as worksheets or mindfulness support.
 
I offer counselling for children and adolescents which can be up to the age of 18.
