Working with Children

I love working with young people and offer sessions for children from the age of 7.


My previous career as a primary school teacher and depute head means that your little one is in a very safe pair of hands. 


Whether they are coming to see me for anxiety, self-confidence, low mood, a fear or phobia, or anything else, you can rest assured that I tailor make the session to suit their needs and ensure they enjoy the experience! 


Everything is explained at their level and I use puppets, props and drawings to capture their imaginations.

Working with Parents

Are you the parent of an anxious child or teen?  Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Is their anxiety taking its toll on you? Would you rather feel calm, relaxed and in control?    


Fancy learning how to help your child change their mindset, at the same time changing yours? 

Doing Homework

Emotionally Based School Avoidance

Emotionally based school avoidance (sometimes called school refusal) refers to the situation when a pupil avoids going to school due to emotional distress, anxiety, or other mental health issues. It is a complex issue that can be caused by various factors.


These children may exhibit physical symptoms, such as headaches and stomach aches, when it is time to leave for school or even experience panic attacks. Their stress levels are often through the roof and anxiety disorders  or depression can take root. It is so important to address this issue as it can have a significant impact on the child's academic and social development.
