Counselling & Psychotherapy for Children
Counselling for Children
My name is Gayle Creasey and I offer psychotherapy and counselling for children in Maidenhead (SL6 7JR).
I provide counselling for children and young people aged 5-20 years.
Covid 19 Update: I am currently offering both online and in person counselling sessions. Please do get in touch if you have questions about how online sessions could work for your child.
Your child is welcome to come for a single session or for as long as s/he feels helpful. I offer daytime, after school and evening counselling sessions Mondays to Friday between 8am- 8pm.
Common issues in counselling for children:
Counselling for children covers many areas and I have extensive experience of supporting children with the following issues:
- anxiety/ worries
- angry & aggressive behaviour
- lack of concentration
- low confidence/ self-esteem
- eating issues
- exam stresses
- friendship issues
- family difficulties
- parental separation/ divorce
- sleep problems
- sexuality issues
- trauma & abuse
How I can help your child:
What is creative arts counselling for children?

Each of these creative arts offers a way to externalise, reflect on and find a new language for thoughts and feelings. Your child does not need to feel creative or good at art. Using the creative arts may help them to find a new, unexpected language for what they are feeling. It is this language which is important, not being artistic. In some, or all, of their sessions your child may just want to talk and I will always be guided by them.
