The work with children, young people, and their families that I do is typically assisting with the management of the concerns and behaviours associated with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Global Developmental Delay (GDD). These are serious developmental disorders that may significantly impair the child’s ability to communicate, acquire education, and interact with others. This work may additionally extend into working alongside respective schools, assisting teaching staff and providing training and resources when requested.
I also work alongside adults with a variety of mental health and wellness concerns. As adults, we are constantly juggling the day to day demands, and responsibilities, of living a life. Coupled with this, we may lose sight of longer term goals. When this happens, unhappiness, anxiety and depression are often found contributing to the daily stresses that we manage. Make contact and let me assist you in discovering a path towards your goals and returning to a sense of balance.
I am also able to provide parenting and family support, with a particular speciality for those with children with special needs.
I draw on what I know works, but I am always open to thinking outside the box to help clients on their pathway to success, whatever they may wish that to be. I employ Functional Family Therapy (FFT), Acceptance and Compassion Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solutions Focused Brief Therapy (SFET), and Narrative paradigms tailoring as needed to each client's individual needs.
