Parents seek psychological support for their children for many reasons.
Children may be showing symptoms of anxiety or a depressed mood. They may be struggling with developmental transitions or engaging in behaviours that don’t make sense, leaving them feeling disconnected from themselves and their family.
Together we would seek to understand what the symptoms or behaviours are communicating, how we can listen to them and, ultimately, how we might find healthier ways for these needs and feelings to be communicated.
This approach deepens your connection to your child or adolescent, helping them to feel heard and understood (which is something we all wish for).
In particular I specialise in Synergetic Play Therapy and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, which are effective tools for working with all kinds of issues in biological, foster and adoptive families.
