CHILD & TEEN ANXIETY COUNSELLING & THERAPY

SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES IS MY PASSION
IMG_0189.jpeg

I’ve spent the last 20 years working with children and teenagers with social, emotional and mental health challenges (SEMH). I’ve been a special needs teacher, a school mental health counsellor, the head teacher of special needs schools for children with SEMH and am a BACP accredited psychotherapist.

I'm experienced in working with young people with internalised and externalised mental health challenges including anxiety, emotionally-based school avoidance (school refusal), depression and social difficulties. I've worked with young people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, and with neuro, gender and identity diversity. 

I'm a passionate life-long learner and often 'geeking out' on an audio-book or podcast from leading experts in the field of teen anxiety. I'm also a husband and father to two young boys. 

My approach is to help young people build skills, discover what they care about, take action, experiment and learn from the world. I work with children and teenagers aged 10-18 and aim to involve their parents/carers in some capacity as change happens most powerfully when everyone is included in the therapeutic process. If a child isn't ready for counselling, I work with parents, coaching them to use therapeutic frameworks to support their children.

Managing anxiety takes determination and it's a skill that your child can learn

Even if your child isn't ready for counselling, you can learn ways to help them with their anxiety

LET'S SET UP A TIME TO TALK
 

We can have a 20 minute chat on Zoom, either just you and I or with your child too, to see how I can support you and if we're a good fit. There's no charge for this consultation call.
 

I work online so your/your child's sessions will also take place on Zoom. I don't offer any in person sessions.
