I have experience working with children and their parents and carers coping with a range of emotional, social and behavioural issues that can contribute to a child feeling unhappy. 

Common concerns I can help with include:

  • Anxiety - school anxiety, phobias, general anxiety, separation anxiety and panic attacks

  • School refusal

  • Trauma

  • Anger

  • Shyness or withdrawal

  • Low mood and depression

  • Low self-confidence

  • Parental divorce, separation and adjustment to new families

  • Bereavement

  • Parental/child/sibling relationship difficulties

  • Sleep/bedtime issues

  • Social difficulties

  • Friendship issues

  • Behavioural difficulties

  • Difficulty making friends or sustaining friendships

  • Bullying

  • Transition to secondary school or new school

  • Difficulties at school due to special educational needs.

I also have experience working with children with special educational needs.
