I am a psychodynamic counsellor who works with children and young people aged three to 18 years old. I support children to better understand, manage and express their thoughts and feelings so that they may feel more at ease in the world.
Psychodynamic counselling with Dolores
At the centre of my practice is the child’s well-being and safety. I see it as my role to create a safe environment where they can feel free to be themselves without judgement, thus enabling growth and personal discovery to take place. The eminent psychotherapist, Donald Winnicott, refers to this as the ‘facilitating environment’; where their world can be explored through play, creativity and supportive dialogue. I offer a variety of art materials, sand play and a range of small world toys to support the child / young person to express and explore their experience.
