My Approach

Claire Jakobsson - Child & Adolescent Counsellor

  

My approach is to deliver a style of therapy that supports children and young adults to explore their thoughts and feelings, express themselves, and make sense of their world and life experiences.  By allowing children to explore and communicate with materials that are natural to their play produces highly effective outcomes.  Play is a natural activity of learning, which in turn allows children to ‘play out’ what they may find difficult to put into words. 

I work with children of all ages in a safe, secure and trusting environment.  I provide services in the family home, your child's school or in my therapeutic room in Barnet. My therapy is designed to create a more positive outlook of their place in the world. I equip children with strategies to better cope with everyday life.
