working with young people
Having recently completed a Post-Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People, I am now delighted to be able to offer counselling to young people aged 11+ from my practice in central Bath.
In addition to increasing my knowledge of child and adolescent development, this qualification has brought my knowledge of child safeguarding procedures and policies bang up to date, so you, as a parent, can feel safe in the knowledge that your child will be working with a responsible, qualified practitioner.
When I work with young people I invite them to come in with their parent(s)/carer(s) for a free initial assessment session, so that everyone has the opportunity to meet and ask questions. I will explain the boundaries of confidentiality and safeguarding, to ensure that everyone (including the young person) understands where they stand and how the work will proceed.
