Children and young people


Access to emotional support for children, young people and parents, can sometimes be a challenge. I am pleased to be able to offer an accessible private support service in Northumberland in the heart of Hexham . 

With younger people it can be daunting to talk to a stranger and I do all I can to help a young person feel safe , comfortable and relaxed . I use lots of creative ways to engage children and young people as sitting down face to face with a therapist can be intimidating for the first few times  ,being creative and talking at the same time can help children feel safe and allows them to open up and talk freely. I will do all I can to ensure a young person feels comfortable. Adolescents may prefer to talk in the therapy room in the comfy armchairs , whatever works best for them. 

I can offer support to parents seeking support with ECHP plans, guidance on special education needs and support further assessments into another service for ASD , ADHD and other conditions. I can not diagnose such conditions but can identify traits  during assesment and recommend a route to take to another service for further in depth assesements.
