Therapeutic Services Tailored to Your Needs
Welcome to Space 2 Contemplate – where you have the time and space to think about things that are important to you.
I offer direct work and consultation to individuals and families (of all types) spanning over the whole of childhood and adulthood. My service is suitable for people who have had difficult life experiences (e.g. traumatic events that are affecting your wellbeing), emotional regulation issues (e.g. anger) and/or mental health issues (e.g. anxiety, depression and feeling disconnected from yourself). I can assess and treat a variety of conditions effectively using tailored treatments. Techniques are verbal and non-verbal and suit a variety of learning styles. Many of the options are available online via Microsoft Teams.
Things that can be helped with therapy are issues such as those below (this is not an exclusive list):
- Behavioural Difficulties
- Depression/Low Mood
- Dissociation/Depersonalisation (where you feel disconnected from yourself/your feelings and may have confusion about whether you did things or not)
- Eating Issues
- PTSD/Trauma – Challenging life events which result in sudden, involuntary, unexpected recollection of these and often poor sleep and/or increase in nightmares
- Relationship Issues; with family, friends, work colleagues or the wider public
- Self-Esteem/Body Consciousness
My experience includes working with children aged 3 onwards, adolescents and adults with a variety of abilities and differences. I have worked with individuals and parents/children as well as groups. I can also offer consultation for residential unit carers, foster carers, kinship carers and adoptive parents. I sometimes offer bespoke training upon request.
