I am a psychodynamic counsellor who works with children and young people aged three to 18 years old. As a psychodynamic counsellor, I believe that unconscious processes guide our ways of relating to each other. At the centre of my practice are the child’s well-being and safety. I aim to create a safe space for children to feel able to be themselves without judgement, what Winnicott refers to as the ‘facilitating environment’, where the child’s inner world can be explored.
Psychodynamic counselling with Dolores
I aim to provide a safe environment where growth and personal discovery can take place. A place where internal and external worlds can be thought about. The child is free to move around in her/his subjective world. The child will be able to express her/himself using a variety of art materials also through sand play and a range of small world toys that will be available to them. In my work, the therapeutic relationship is key to the success of the counselling.
