working with young people
I have a Post-Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People, so in addition to my work with adults I also offer counselling to young people aged 11+
I hold an advanced DBS certificate (Disclosure and Barring Service) and keep my knowledge of child safeguarding procedures and GDPR policies up to date, so you, as a parent, guardian, or carer, 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.
