Why Me..?

My main speciality is working with children and I have a vast amount of experience working with children and adolescents ages 11-19. My work includes supporting young people with their psychological well-being, behavioural and emotional well-being needs. I have also worked with young people who are at risk of self-harm and/or suicidal behaviour. I have worked in Kuwait and Qatar as a school counsellor and i have experience working in public and private sectors.

One of the approaches that I use is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) providing treatment to children and adolescents who present with disorders such as: depression, anxiety, social phobia, bipolar disorder, oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I use mindfulness, and integrative approaches based on what will benefit the client most.

I have also worked with children presenting with all types of difficulties including those who have been sexually abused, children presenting with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), long term conditions (multiple scoliosis (MS), and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). I have also worked with children after a parent’s divorce or loss, change of house, school or country.

For each client, I perform an individual assessment. I offer sessions with the child and the parents together or separately and will also communicate with schools when required to gather all relevant information. I communicate with the parents regularly with regards to the child’s progress. I can coordinate school visits in order to check the child’s presentation in academic settings and keeps close communication with other health care professionals that participated in the treatment of the child when required such as neurologist, psychiatrist, dieticians and physiotherapists.

During my sessions with children, I work targeting specific treatment areas using cognitive behavioural interventions. I also included token economy programs reinforced by the child’s parents and teachers and game therapy. When working with older children I will sometimes, if necessary, use deeper approaches such as CBT therapy with hypnotherapy to offer an adolescent insight to help promote change.

I have previous experience working as a teacher, tutor and counseler with children. i have often worked with families where the children have special needs. I have tutored teenagers. In order to assist them in the best way possible, i employed techniques in order to help them improve their organisational skills. For children to grasp concepts efficiently and effectively, I employed hands-on activities in order to enhance their cognitive skills and help them learn concepts via different stimulating means.

I have a broad amount of experience working with adults such as individuals, couples, families etc. For the teenage and adult population, I employ CBT interventions and change strategies when conducting sessions with patients who were diagnosed, to name a few, with; phobias, depression, anxiety, eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, binge eating and bulimia) and obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD). When working with teenagers I also work on decision-making processes in order for them to choose a professional career path they like.

Other difficulties that i work with are; ADHD, Autism Spectrum disorder, body dimorphic disorder (BDD), learning difficulties (concentration), long term chronic illness, phobias, relationship problems, self-harm, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as many other areas.
