Child, Adolescent & Family

I work with children, adolescents and families to resolve mild to severe issues such as;

 

  • Anxiety disorders (separation anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic, phobias, generalised anxiety)

  • Depression/low mood

  • Trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Self-esteem/confidence

  • Grief and loss

  • Attachment

  • Behavioural issues

  • Anger

  • Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) etc.

  • Pain and physical health issues

 

Understanding the importance of the family to a child or adolescent, I have completed specialist training in Systemic and Family Therapy to work with individuals and their family together.  There is a considerable amount of evidence supporting this approach for child and adolescent issues.

What to Expect

Our first appointment is a chance for us to meet and discuss the issues concerning you or your family. During this session, I will develop an understanding of the psychological and emotional processes underlying the issues. I will learn about your values and desires so I can work sensitively with them. This session will also be an opportunity for you to become familiar and comfortable with me, to learn about clinical psychology and my skills and ask any questions you have.

I will keep you informed of my understanding of your issues and the causes, the treatment I will provide and how many appointments this may require. We can then make subsequent appointments if you wish to continue working with me. We can also discuss if it might be beneficial for you to see another health professional with different skills.​
