We currently have two counsellors at Crossover offering different therapies. Please contact us if you want to enquire about receiving support.
Emily Reffold – Counselling & Play-Based Therapy
Emily is part of the Crossover team and is offering Counselling and Play based therapy to local young people. Therapy sessions are available for young people from 8+ years old.
Counselling is a 1:1 meeting which allows you space to talk about your problems, helping you to better understand them and learn how to deal with them differently.
Each counselling session is uniquely tailored to the needs of the child. Emily offers a range of creative and play based interventions to engage children and put them at ease.
Counselling can be helpful for a whole range of difficulties including; low mood, anxiety, self-esteem, relationship difficulties with family or friends, anger, emotional resilience, body confidence,questioning gender or sexuality.
For more information about counselling or to book a session, speak to Emily or Georgie.
Emily is an Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adheres to their ethical code of conduct.
Iuliana Guddat – Reflective Parenting and Counselling
My name is Iuliana Guddat and I am in my final stages of training to be a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Counsellor. The course I am undertaking is validated by Middlesex University and accredited by UKCP
(United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). I joined the Crossover volunteer team to offer support to parents through reflective parenting sessions and counselling for children and young adults.
Reflective parenting is a time when the parent(s) can talk openly about difficulties that they encounter with their child. Together we (the parent(s) and the counsellor) reflect and try to make sense of what is going on for the child, and how the child can be understood and supported. The session can last up to 50 minutes and takes place only at the parent(s)’s request.
Counselling is a 1:1 meeting where a child or young adult can talk about problems or express difficult feelings by using art and other available resources. The sessions are person-centred and the aim is to help them understand, make sense of and learn different ways of managing difficult feelings. I use an integrative model of counselling which involves the use of different therapeutic approaches in understanding the person as a whole.
