Psychotherapeutic Counselling:

For Children and Young People

Children and young people have counselling for lots of reasons. Some are learning how to manage feelings like anger and sadness. Some may be coping with loss. Some may need help with friendship groups and some just don’t feel right and want to feel better. Dandelion Counselling offers a safe and supportive environment where the counsellor will help your child, or the person you care for, learn how to support themselves. It will help them work through their difficulties and work out effective coping strategies. The main aims of counselling are:

  • To support the child to make changes in their life.
  • To understand and learn how to cope with difficult emotions.
  • To identify specific problems.
  • To identify goals the child would like to work on.

I am able to offer both short and long-term sessions for children and young people.

For Adults

Psychotherapeutic counselling is a type of counselling that integrates a range of theories and approaches used in psychotherapy. Focus is placed on the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and the client.

You may be struggling to make sense of your situation or feel stuck and unsure how to move forward. You may have a sense that something needs to change but are not sure where to start. Perhaps there is a sense of feeling overwhelmed by your difficulties, or, you may not be living the kind of life you would like.

I work in a collaborative way to help you understand and overcome the barriers that are preventing you from living your life in the way you would like. My aim is to support you in gaining understanding and insight, which will help you to explore different perspectives and make choices for yourself.
