Children & Teens (This title is not visible)
Counselling for children and teenagers is different from adult counselling. In particular children need ways other than just words, to express and explore what is troubling them and to develop new ideas and skills. This is why Sara uses art, play and creative activities to engage and work with children.
As a parent, you know your child better than anyone else, so it is important that Sara works closely with you in addressing your concerns, and helping your child, whether they are experiencing:
- Social & Emotional difficulties
- Bumps in The Road
- Childhood Trauma
Families and Parenting (This title is not visible)
Sara is keen to work with your family’s strengths, values and priorities.
All families are living systems, which naturally change over time as they go through the family life cycle.
Sometimes families need some extra help with the very real ‘everyday challenges’ and stresses of parenting. Families can benefit from ‘Parent Coaching’ to get back on track, learn new strategies and skills to become stronger and more resilient.
Some families may be experiencing more significant struggles, Sara is trained in a range of therapies and will choose the best approach to fit your family. Sara offers therapeutic counselling to parents or whole families and is particularly keen to involve Dad’s in the counselling process where possible.
