I have several areas of specialism:
Children and Young People: I have worked with young people since 2006. Young people are under immense pressure in today's society and view the world differently to any generation before them. I have worked with young people with issues, such as, self-esteem, anxiety, bereavement, school or social issues, social media, sexualised behaviours, risk-taking behaviours, anger management and self-harm. It is vital with young people that they feel able to discuss issues openly, in a non-judgemental setting and feel heard and understood. As part of my work I have been contracted to schools since 2006, I have also held a safeguarding position where I work with a school to ensure all children and young people are safe, and the correct provisions are in place if a child, or young person, requires additional support at a higher level of intervention.
Family and Couple Therapy: Supporting family members to communicate and resolve conflicts and issues in a safe and neutral space. A chance to understand each others views and experiences and for each family member to feel heard and understood.
Adult Services: In today's society we lead busy, stressful lives. Talking therapy is an incredibly useful tool to help with a range of issues and can be highly effective in helping people achieve success in every day life. For some people this will be to develop, reclaim and maintain their life, for others it will be to gain new skills in order to review their life and live it to its fullest. Areas that can impact on the optimising of life are:
All these are areas that I have worked in extensively and supported clients to enhance the quality of their lives.
