Esther Lawrence NNEB DCHI have many years experience working with young people, children and teenagers, using modern brief strategic therapy and the traditional talking therapies.
Gaining an NNEB in 1999 which was awarded by CACHE (Council for Awarding Care, Health and Education) CACHE is the leading specialist awarding organisation for the care and education sector. With some fifteen years daily experience working with young people I am focused on understanding, preventing and working with psychological issues which interfere with the progress and development of children and young adults.
My continuing professional development includes assessment, observational and attachment theories, Integrative therapy, Integrative art therapy, Humanistic approaches, Systemic psychotherapy, CBT, NLP. Behavioural Sciences, Psychoanalysis, Person Centred therapy, Formal & Informal Clinical Hypnotherapy; whilst Hypnotherapy is not recommended for the under sixteen’s the brief strategic approaches and visualisations used within this approach can be extremely beneficial.
It is the application of these skills which aids your child’s development through a possible difficult time.
I work independently and where necessary alongside other professionals in planning how best to help your child and the family, for example in schools, nurseries, hospitals, children’s services and child protection agencies; often working as part of multidisciplinary teams comprising speech and language therapists, social workers, paediatric nurses, and SENCOs ensuring the therapy process is implemented most effectively.
