Children and Young People are under immense pressure to always be on their A game. It doesn’t need to be like this.
One in six children has a mental health condition and can wait 18 months for clinical help, but sometimes, simply having a safe space to talk, be creative, and learn relaxation techniques with a skilled mentor can be a great first step to making sense of life.
And by chance, you clicked on my website!
At every stage of a child or young person’s life, they’re having to deal with emotional and physical changes in an ever-increasing fast-paced world. Before we know it, they’re adults, stressed to the max, lost in a sea of high emotions, worry, upset, and confusion.
As a qualified Youth Worker with extensive experience of working in the education and voluntary sectors, the majority of my clients are children and teens struggling with the stresses and strains of life. I have worked with all ages for 19 years, completed a plethora of training in life coaching and mindful practices, and continue to support individuals and groups to navigate the world they’re growing up in. Some of the people I work with simply want to learn basic relaxation techniques in order to be able to switch off at the end of the day. For others they want a bit more support to resolve a specific issue affecting their wellbeing. I help adults too. Let me help you boost your self-esteem and confidence, explore your abilities, and help you relax. Whether 1:1 or in group settings, I centre you as an individual and create a safe, calm, and supportive environment.
You’ll see it says I’m a Creative too at the top of the page. I write poetry, short stories, scripts, and more, and encourage creativity throughout my work, which includes my Writing for Wellbeing course.
It’s been great working with you. Thank you for all your support. You’ve been a lovely person to communicate with during all this. I hope our paths cross again one day.
