Worried about your teenager?

  • Locked all day in their room – or out partying all night?
  • Cut off from their friends – or no friends at all?
  • Mixing with the wrong crowd?
  • School or college work falling off?
  • Disappearing for long periods – and refusing to explain?
  • Won’t talk to you – and refuses to listen as well?

If questions like these are causing you concern, call me for a no-obligation chat in total confidence.

With years of experience as a mentor, mediator and coach for some of London’s most troubled young people, I have helped hundreds of teenagers to turn their lives around – and their families to rediscover the laughter and unity they once had.

I have five years experience at the Maudsley Hospital working with children and young people. I'm a qualified adviser with NYAS ( National Youth Advocacy Service), Experienced Childline Counsellor and are CRB checked to the highest level.

      Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems
      Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

      Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

      Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Voluntary Register scheme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

      Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.
