In response to many queries about support for pre-teens I have introduced  

Lisa Burgin MBACP to the team. She will be working for me after school Wednesday and all day Thursdays. To make an appointment with Lisa please contact.

She is also able to work with teenagers.

I have extensive experience of working with children and young in primary and secondary school settings and understand just how challenging and confusing life can be for them.  As a counsellor, I feel privileged to be able to help young people, and understand how much this can help the whole family. I have lots of resources to help young people feel safe to share their worries with me, and together we can look for ways to make things easier for them.

I have experience of supporting young people to achieve academically, and of pupils who struggle with mainstream school. I am interested in neurodiversity and the challenges of providing environments that enable learning and thriving, rather than just surviving. Sharing understanding of ASD, or ADHD can be helpful for young people and all involved in their care and happiness   I am excited to join Olivia’s practise and can offer both counselling to young people of primary and secondary school age.
