I offer counselling for young people age 14 and upwards.
Growing up in the modern world can bring many challenges for young people who are navigating puberty and the physical and emotional changes this brings.
This is a time where they are starting to explore who they are and where they fit into the world.
Many are trying to cope with pressures and expectations at school, college and university, understanding relationships and staying safe online on multiple social media platforms.
The COVID pandemic has brought new and unexpected challenges for young people. Their anxieties are a normal and understandable reaction to the unexpected situation they find themselves in which has disrupted much of what they feel safe with and understood about their life.
Counselling sessions will give them a safe space in which they can express and explore worries and anxieties and understand them in the context of their own lives.
Walk and Talk sessions – immersing ourselves in nature, connecting with our own sense of sound, smell, touch can improve mental and emotional well-being. Sometimes, we can find it difficult to open up and know how and where to start talking . . .
The loss of a loved one, whether it is a family member, friend, colleague or pet can be very hard to bear. Death may be expected or unexpected, a suicide and sometimes, unexplained and all of these circumstances can bring a wide range of feelings . . .
Counselling falls under the umbrella term ‘Talking Therapies’. As a Counsellor I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk at your own pace, discuss difficulties and challenges and explore thoughts and feelings . . .
