I am a qualified integrative counsellor who specialises in working with children and young people aged 4 to 18 years of age.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I use a holistic approach drawing on different models of therapy to tailor support for the individual needs of the young people I work with. In particular, I use talking, play and creativity as therapeutic tools to allow my clients to express themselves in different ways however, there is no pressure on clients to use all or any of these specific tools. We use the time and space together in a way that feels comfortable and safe for them to process their feelings and make sense of their experiences.
