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, ACT 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
  • Phobias
  • 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.
