My specialisms are working with all ages in anxiety, attachment, stress, loss and bereavement, all aspects of adoption and Relationship difficulties
for children and teenagers, I specialise in separation anxiety, attachment difficulties, anxiety, depression, stress, bullying, low self esteem, children's sleep difficulties, nightmares and night terrors, eating difficulties, fistering and adoption, loss and bereavement, confidence, social difficulties and perfectionism.
My approach is to find out about you as an individual, and to find which ways of working are most suitable and comfortable for you. I like to offer a range of techniques as I feel these allow more opportunities for the techniques to help in different ways, many of the creative, sand and drawing techniques are particularly helpful as they do not require you to talk directly about the problem, which some people find more confortabke, especially teenagers.
I usually start working with weekly face to face sessions, but after improvement, we can change to alternate weeks or phobe calks if preferred.
When working with younger children, I would usuallywork with the parent and child for the first session or so, until everyone feels comfortable.
If I am working on behaviour, I tend to have one session with the child, but the next week have a phone session with parents to set new targets and discuss difficulties.
