I offer a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental service in a pleasant and relaxed environment. Together we work through the difficulties that come with caring for a challenging child, allowing an exploration of your deepest feelings, thoughts and fears.
Each session is designed to address each individual client’s specific needs. For many, the opportunity to talk in a safe space to someone who has walked in their shoes makes all the difference.
The steps below give an idea of the process that counselling often follows, attending to personal pain, lost expectations, coping strategies, resilience and self care and progression.
