I first began working with young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD) and those with special needs in 2004 at Ashburton Community School.
Since qualifying as a counsellor I have worked therapeutically both short term and long term with adults and young people affected by ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia. and BESD. Presenting issues I have worked with include, deep depression, anxiety, extreme stress, dissociation, self harm, rape, and low self-esteem.
I have attended specialist training and workshops related to this I work ,and have read widely on Autism and Asperger Syndrome. Over the last year I have had a growing number of adult clients both male and female who are living with these conditions and finding it difficult to cope. My approach when working with clients with Autism and Asperger Syndrome is much the same as when working with other clients and is centres around exploring associated anxiety, etc. so please browse through the other pages to learn about issues I work with and my approach. I have also given counselling to parents of children with Asperger Syndrome, Autism, and other behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
Since May 2020 I have begun working with a growing number of clients with ADHD who were looking to work with a counsellor with experience of working with clients who are neurodivergent. I don’t profess to be an expert with ADHD but I am happy to work with you and have found that a combination of EMDR, CBT and Coaching seems to work well.
