Example of my work with young minds
I was recently contacted by a Mum whose daughter Milly (not her real name) had progressively escalating problems leaving the house, going to visit her father at his house, or going anywhere without her Mum.
Lockdown had exacerbated this issue and now that she was facing going back to school she was becoming more and more withdrawn.
I went to see Milly and spent an hour talking with her and took her through a game that my colleagues and I have developed.
On the first day back at school, Milly happily left for school. I had asked her to call me after school to tell me how she had got on at school that day.
Later that day, Milly called me to report she had a great day at school and was looking forward to going back the next day!
