At an initial session, I will undertake an assessment to help gain a better understanding of the difficulties presenting. This session will typically be with the child, together with their carers/families, or individually for an older child or young adult.
The initial session usually takes around one and a half hours.
I use CBT and other treatment approaches to help with a range of emotional or mental health problems, for example:
- Parenting of younger children – supporting sleep, feeding, toilet training and behavioural difficulties.
- Anxiety disorders
- Self esteem/confidence building
- Exam stress
- Depression/low mood
- Psychological impact of medical conditions, sleep disorders, bereavement/loss
Following the initial session, subsequent treatments are usually short to medium term.
