After you refer a child or self-refer, we will have a 15 minute Consultation together.
If we agree to do so, I will book your child or you in for an Initial Assessment, which will be between 30 - 50 minutes
Following that, we can arrange for regular 1:1 Therapy Sessions at the same time each week.
This is all via phone or zoom. Please talk to me about face to face sessions.

I'm a young person and I want to refer myself for counselling:
Some young people know exactly what is bothering them and others just have a feeling that things aren’t right. You may look for a counsellor if you are stuck with difficult feelings or finding something that is troubling you.
Things that you might be struggling with could be:
Bullying at school or difficulties with friendships/relationships
Someone in your family is ill or has died
Worries about your exams
Feelings of panic, anxiety, anger or depression
Feeling unsafe at home
Not getting on with your parents or siblings
Parents separating or divorcing
Uncertainty about who you are
Questioning your sexuality
Or maybe none of these...If your particular problem is not listed here or seems embarrassing, weird or silly to you, it’s still OK to get in touch with me.
Counselling and creative therapies can help you by providing a space to explore and make sense of things that are making life difficult – at a time and a space every week just for you.
What you tell me is private
Counselling is confidential which means information that you share with me is private. I would only share information with another professional if there are serious and immediate concerns about your safety or the safety of others. I will always try to talk with you first.
