Mandy Mitchell Counselling
Down to earth counselling - that makes a difference
Child/Teen and Family Sessions
Whilst I will sometimes work directly with individual children, I often find that working with the family as a whole is more effective. After all, what I can achieve in an hour with a young person, when facilitated effectively, can be implemented 24/7 as part of your family dynamics.
I may work directly with you as parents or individually, and also include some sessions with your young person or as a family unit.
At the beginning, I may act as a ‘bridge’ between members of the family with a view to stepping away, as your family feel more confident communicating and managing the changes you are seeking.
My personal philosophy tends to be that if you ‘lift the bonnet’ on any human being there remains a ‘little person’ inside. As a result, my work with young people is rooted in the same theories as my work with adults. It is simply communicated in a child friendly, language appropriate and developmentally effective manner
