Children's mental health and emotional issues are increasing and they affect all areas of a child's life: social, learning, classroom behaviour and health. Young Minds have found that 1 in 5 children have reported experiencing mental health problems and difficulties with their emotions.
I know that schools, teachers and support staff are doing what they can to support their pupils, I also know that these staff members are already busy with their daily requirements and it can be hard to find time and space to provide well-being support, especially for those children with more complex needs.
I am a qualified and experienced children's therapist. I have worked as a school counsellor and have run groups in schools helping children to understand their feelings and themselves
In schools I can provide 1:1 therapy sessions, group work and workshops. I have specialist training in working with trauma and creative techniques and am very experienced in working with ADHD, Autism, Gender and Sexuality.
I will work with you to improve the mental health and well-being of your pupils through working with the children, as well as teachers ,and parents to ensure we are all working together to best support the students. I can help you to promote well-being and resilience in your students and staff through positive and proactive techniques and methods
