Adolescents and children often have a unique problem which sets them apart from adults. Primarily they know they are unhappy, but have little idea what the exact cause of the unhappiness is! They don't like going to school/University any more, they are unhappy at home, they won't mix with their friends but can't actually put their finger on why.
The problem is often a feeling of not fitting in. They feel too fat, too thin, too geeky, too shy, not sporty, not sexy, not intelligent, misunderstood, picked on by teachers/lecturers or bullied. The bullying may be ongoing, or it could have happened in the past and has left them with incredibly low self esteem and a fear of getting close to others in case they also turn on them. They may even begin to believe the vicious words the bullies have taunted them with. This can manifest itself into loneliness, withdrawal, panic, loss of concentration, fear of being singled out and ultimately total withdrawal from everything and everyone.
Exams can be great cause of concern as they feel inadequate and talk themselves into believing they don't know the subject. During the exam their mind goes blank; they panic and are unable to produce the work they are capable of.
Going away to College or University can be traumatic as it may be the first time they have left home and feel homesick and incapable of coping without support.
children finally acknowledge that they need help, they want to know they will be safe, secure and believed by the person helping them. Jill’s way of working makes them feel exactly like that.
Telephone/Skype work is particularly good with children as they can be treated from the safety of their own home. They thinks its fun and aren’t aware of the work they’re doing.
A 2 hr session is booked and paid for, but the session can last for as long or short a time, as they feel comfortable. If for example the first session only lasts 45 mins, then the other 1.1/4 hrs can be taken at any other time(s).
A follow up could be from their home just before an exam, or the night before the first day back at school.
Working hours are a thing of the past. Flexibility is the key factor here.
My son recently came to see you. He had been struggling for the last year, finding life hard, low self esteem, generally finding life as a teenager very hard to adjust to. I just wanted to tell you that his visit with you has made a massive difference to him. From the minute I picked him up from your office he appeared more relaxed, more communicative and more at ease.
Jill firmly believes in a holistic approach, and will discuss client needs on an individual basis to decide upon the most appropriate treatment to pursue. Sometimes a combination of approaches is the most effective - Thought Field Therapy overcomes fears, NLP creates excellence, and Reiki promotes a sense of peace and well-being.
Consultations are personal and confidential, and are conducted face to face in Oxshott, Surrey or over the telephone. Consultants can also be held at the client’s premises, if necessary.
Initial consultations will be for 2 hours. Many people will require only one or two sessions.
