Counselling for Children (aged 4-10)
My counselling work with children is underpinned with key knowledge and understanding of child developmental stages and transitions, family development and how best to help a child express, reflect on and make sense of their emotions and experiences. I offer play and creative activities to help a child feel safe and secure to explore their life-story, understand themselves and their world better and encourage the growth of skills to help them flourish and thrive.
