Counselling Parents and Teenagers

Are you worried about your children’s health or behaviour? 

Are you confused by so many expert opinions and advice?

When your needs are not being met you feel stressed, you are concerned about issues in your own life, and this makes it more difficult for you to understand, support and enjoy your children.

My approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you deal effectively with the stresses in your life and get your needs met, so you are less stressed, you feel better, and you are in a much better condition to help your children.

If your children are 12 years old or older, I can work with them as well. Depending on your situation, as everyone is different, I may work separately with you and your child or children, or have joint sessions.

Usually a combination of joint and separate sessions works best, however this does vary and my aim is to work in whatever way is most helpful and effective for you and your child or children.

I offer individual sessions(face-to-face and phone), couples sessions, small group sessions and workshops, both in-house and public.   I am also available for speaking engagements.

I have developed core development as a result of 35 years international experience of working with adults and children in various settings, as well as having overcome serious obstacles myself including turning my life around after 12 years of chronic anxiety and depression.

I bring all my experience and insights to our work together so we’re successful. These include my training and experience in counselling and somatic psychotherapy, youth mentoring, child care, structural consulting and physical therapy.

My approach is supportive, validating and encouraging. I help you identify and develop your strengths and talents, some of which are often hidden. You can use these to deal with your challenges constructively so you get positive and permanent results.

Please note that core development is a learning experience and is not intended to replace clinical or medical attention where this is required.
