With three children of my own, I am fully aware that being young can sometimes present complex, emotional issues. But with professional help, many young people find the power to face life’s challenges. They stop struggling and move into adulthood as happier, more balanced beings.
Parenting in the 21st Century is not for the faint-hearted, it is no surprise you feel overwhelmed when it comes to how best to support your children.
I also provide parents with support because taking care of yourself is part of taking care of your children.
Obsessive-compulsive behaviour/emotional eating
Coping with change
Performance and focus
For children under 16, I always have a parent or main caregiver in the room throughout treatment. I liaise with parents outside the session times in order to monitor and review progress.
I work with you to create a treatment plan that works. After the initial consultation I will tell you how many sessions I think we will need and then we will review progress at regular agreed intervals.
Typically 5 -10 sessions are sufficient for lasting change.
What to expect
I create an engaging environment, carefully tailoring my approach to meet your child’s particular needs and interests – using relaxation techniques, mindfulness, role play, storytelling, digital media, visualization, games and art. Sessions are jam packed with tools to help your child dissolve away their worries allowing them to feel calmer, happier and more empowered.
I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Hypnotherapy. All are clinically proven and highly effective in helping young people to understand that what they are going through right now does NOT have to define them forever.
I carry public liability insurance and I am registered with professional organisations. I also regularly attend Continuing Professional Development events relevant to coaching, cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy, other forms of therapy and have regular supervision to ensure that I am practicing safely and ethically within the evolving scope of practice.
Experts agree that a healthy diet kick-starts cognitive development, significantly increasing your childs chances of leading a long and healthy life.
You would love your child to explore new foods, without bribing, nagging or distractions
You worry whether your child or your family is getting enough nutrition
You wish mealtimes weren’t so stressful
You worry your child has a bad relationship with food
You want to be a better example for your children (so they can grown up to have a healthier relationship with food)
You are scrambling everyday trying to decide what to make for dinner!
As parents, we need to remember that its not just about getting food into our children. Our main aim is to raise healthy adults who make their own food choices, without us nagging them to do so.
With help, your children will learn to relax and enjoy a rich variety on their plates. This can reduce their chances of food-related disorders cropping up in the future, such as food binging, bulimia, anorexia and other eating disorders.
