Children/Teenager Therapy

Counselling for Children and Teenagers

Research suggests that one in ten children aged five to sixteen have a mental health disorder (Office for National Statistics; 2004). In some circumstances children are not necessarily given the opportunity to access support or counselling.

I am able to work with children and teenagers to help them express themselves and explore their needs and experiences. I have also had training in relation to working with bereaved children.

With agreement I can work with children in school or in children’s centres (child and school / children’s centre need to agree this).

Children and teenagers may see a counselling psychologist for a variety of reasons.

Examples Include:

  • issues at home or school
  • relationships with friends and family
  • feeling upset or unhappy
  • being bullied
  • because something has happened to them and they can’t understand it or get over it
  • self confidence issues
  • anger issues
  • problems completing school work
  • low school attendance

During our first meeting you may want a family member or trusted adult to join you. We will discuss the issues and plan the support you may need. Sometimes having a family member with you for the first session can highlight different issues for example they may see things differently to you. This is ok and I am used to children having different opinions to their family members. It is useful for me to hear everyone’s viewpoints. We will then meet at agreed times. I will help you find ways to express your worries. I might use work sheet or drawings to do this.

You can talk to me in private and I will not tell other people (including your family) what has been said unless you want me to or if I am worried that you or someone else might get hurt.

Session Costs

Sessions are £50 per session.

Sessions can take place at their school or other suitable setting of choice. This must be agreed by the school prior to the commencement of therapy.

Fees can be paid by cheque, cash or bank transfer, at the beginning or in advance of the session. 24 hours notice is required for cancellations, otherwise you will be charged for the full session.
