Psychotherapy and Counselling... 

I have a private practice, based at Hayward's Heath Counselling Centre in West Sussex. Online/remote therapy can be discussed for older teenagers, but for young children I can only offer face-to-face appointments. I usually see children and young people for weekly, 50 minutes, sessions.  For very young children, sessions maybe shorter if 50 minutes seems too long for the child to manage.

For young people under the age of 16, my practice is to meet with a young person’s parent/s or primary carer for a consultation before beginning sessions with the young person. This is so I can learn more about what is happening for your young person, and we can explore together how I might be able to help - including whether psychotherapy or counselling would be appropriate. I think it is important for parents to get to know me too, and we can speak more freely if your child or young person is not present. Initial consultations last 50 minutes.

Young people over the age of 16 can meet me for an initial consultation on their own or with a parent or carer if they wish. 

 

Having worked with young people in a diverse range of settings, I am adept at addressing a wide range of challenges, including: anxiety, depression, peer conflicts, bereavement, self-harm, social media difficulties, neurodiversity, trauma academic struggles and many others. My background in children’s social care means I have a special interest in providing therapy for children who do not live with their parents.

My current fee for both initial consultations and ongoing psychotherapeutic counselling sessions is £60.
