Therapy for Children & Adolescents

Thinking about Therapy?

You’re welcome to book a free 15 mins telephone consultation, where we can discuss your child/adolescent’s difficulties and decide if working together would be helpful. 

Initially, we will discuss your child/adolescent’s difficulties and come to a mutual understanding of what they are going through and what therapeutic approach would be the most helpful for them. Parents/carers are often part of the assessment and therapy process, if appropriate. I offer a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches and tailor therapy to meet client’s individual needs.  

Therapy can take many different forms, including sessions with a young person alone, sessions with a child and their parents/carers, or parents/carers only. This will depend on the issues your child/adolescent is experiencing, their age and what would be the most helpful for them. 

I also offer online therapy via Zoom or WhatsApp which has been proven to have just as good outcomes as face-to-face.
