Welcoming Hannah: Child Psychotherapy Specialist

We welcome Hannah to our team at Emotionalskills.uk. who is a specialist in Integrative Child Psychotherapy. 

In 2018 I gained my Masters degree in Integrative Child Psychotherapy from the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE), fulfilling two passions of mine 1) understanding the connection between mind and body 2) working alongside children with behavioural and emotional difficulties. 

Have you ever wondered why children do things in a particular way or wondered what their behaviour is trying to communicate? Child psychotherapy is a process which helps children and adolescents make sense of how they are feeling and how they behave. 

“It offers support for issues which can include difficulties in relationships with family and friends, concerns they are having at school, aggression, depression, anxiety, low self esteem and confidence. ”

Sessions with me include working with art materials such as paint, clay, sand tray, puppets, and drawings. By using art materials, it allows the expression of difficult feelings to be expressed more freely as children’s first mode of communication is through behaviour and play.  Overtime these difficult feelings that children experience can be put into words rather than being expressed in actions/behaviour.  

In my spare time I like to cook/bake, spend time outside, walking my dog Gemma and keeping fit both physically and mentally by doing yoga, meditation and running.
