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 offer one to one support for children and young people but do
not offer family therapy . A parent / carer can be present in sessions in order to support their child but any family therapy would need to sort from another service .
