Child & Adolescent Therapy
Sometimes children, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help children develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapy can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues.
Many children need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness.
I work with children aged 12 upwards.
Should My Child See a Therapist?
Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; abuse; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behaviour, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning.
In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky, or tearful. But, if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts.

Thank you so much for the support and guidance. It’s really helped to build my confidence, set personal goals and be assertive. I now can go out with friends, enjoy life more and look forward to the future.
I have found therapy has changed my life. I no longer feel disconnected from the world, on my own and isolated through EMDR. I have made sense of the traumatic events in my past and now look forward to the future with optimism.
Thank you so much for working with my 15-year old daughter. At school she suffered a great deal of anxiety because of exams and this affected her confidence with friends, her self-esteem and she found it hard to manage her social-media. As a result of therapy, she effectively can manage stress due to exams, her self-esteem has improved and she now deals with social media in a more resilient manner.
