Benefits of Counselling
I believe that all young people deserve a safe, confidential space in which they can be supported. Emotional health provides the foundation for long-term wellbeing. Given the complexity and challenges of our society, it is vital that we support the mental wellbeing of our children and young people.
Counselling is bespoke and unique to each individual. Some of the benefits may include:
Feeling heard and less alone
Creating coherent narratives about difficult experiences
Helping feelings become more manageable
Promoting regulation of the nervous system
Improving emotional communication
Developing emotional resilience
I offer support for specific issues and long-term challenges including:
Worrying and anxiety
Low mood and depression
Bullying and friendship issues
Challenges at school
Significant life events
Having a sibling or parent with high needs
Difficult feelings, thoughts or memories
