I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's well-being, social, emotional needs and behaviour. We understand that many children and families experience difficulties at times that can make a happy, successful home and school life a struggle, this could be as simple as a misunderstanding with friends or it could be a more complex issue such as a change in family circumstances or bereavement . It may be that the support is needed is for a short while or it could be a longer process. I work in a non-judgmental way, I am here to listen, I understand children and families are faced with many difficult challenges in everyday life. I can support you in signposting and contacting a range of different agencies that can also offer support including, Housing, Debt Agencies, local police, Health, Children's Centres, Education Welfare, Social Care, CAMHS.
