I am Arthi Chicken, a qualified Child and Adolescent Counsellor. I hold a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Honours in Psychology with a Certificate in Psychological Practice, qualifying as a Psychologist as well as a Counsellor in Sydney, Australia. I have had additional training in Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I have worked in schools, mental health clinics, community centres and with charitable organisations. Since moving to the UK in 2016, I have worked with both Relate and No Limits. I am a fully registered member of the BACP and therefore adhere to their code of practice, receiving regular supervision and ongoing CPD.

I use a variety of tools in therapy including art-such as drawing, painting or sculpting with clay, writing, puppets, sand tray and picture cards depending on the interests of my clients.

I believe in every client’s capacity for growth, in their abilities to endure hardships and their creativity to solve problems. My role as a therapist is to create an environment of trust and safety, facilitating change and thus making room for resilience.

My name is Clare Scott and I’m a qualified integrative counsellor able to work with adults, adolescents and children. Using an integrative approach means I use different theoretical models, to tailor my skills and techniques to meet the individual needs of each client. To help young people explore and express themselves, I use a variety of tools, this includes drawing, painting, using puppets and interactive games. I’m an insured member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their professional code of practise and guidelines which ensures the safety and well being of my clients. As part of this, I have regular supervision and take part in continuing professional development.

  I have experience working as a counsellor in both junior and senior schools and a college for further education. I have also gained experience in a youth counselling agency and a charitable organisation. I work with the issues that you wish to focus on, in a safe, confidential and supportive environment.
