Children and Adolescents Counselling. Parenting

Why should you come to me with your child?


  • My accumulated life and work experience allow me today to work with children of any age, gender, and problems. I bring to my child and adolescent counseling practice a rich experience of working with children and young people, as a teacher, as a Vice-principal and Principal at the secondary level for about 20 years. Also, I have worked with children at risk, children in foster families, with orphans, with children victims of human trafficking as well as with families having children with disabilities. I started counseling children in 2007.

  • Natural, unconstrained assistance. I do not preach or educate, I use many creative ways to build a relationship with your child, through interacting, through play, drawing, and talking together. I find the child's changes,  sometimes even without noticing it.

  • I have an individual approach with every child. I believe that everyone needs personalized care, so I do not limit myself to generally accepted technologies, but I am always looking for new creative solutions for my clients.

  • Short-time frame. I respect the parent's and children's time. For that reason, I do not work on an  "endless" time-frame, but work until real changes happen for the good of the child. 

  • Practicality. In my work with children and parents, I offer exclusively practical recommendations.

  • Feedback provided by my clients.



Working with | helping children


At home or in school, many children are burdened with difficulties created by their life situations. Unfortunately, many of them carry all these difficulties inside themselves into every aspect of their activities and into their adult lives. If your child is struggling with anger, anxiety, bullying, depression, grief, family conflict and unhappiness, siblings fights, broken friendships, difficult relationships, low self-esteem, stress, family separation or adjusting to step-families, trauma, etc., I’ll come with the following scheme:


  • first of all, I would try to find out what is going on in your child's life and why he (she) is facing difficulties

  • second, after understanding all of it, I'll work with parents on real changing strategy

  • third, if I see a real need of it, I'll work with your child individually or in a small group

  • fourth, I'll offer you all my assistance and support.

Working with | helping parents

I am a mother of two wonderful children and I consider that parental role is the most responsible in the world, and to be a parent is not easy at all. I am open to helping parents too. In order to be available for you and to give the support you need, I use to meet with one or both parents during my work with the child or even separately. It might be a face-to-face meeting or counseling sessions on Skype, especially if you are a busy person or live far away. Also, I provide time to time special workshops and webinars for parents on a variety of topics.

Methods and techniques


In my counseling work with children I use the play and sand therapy, many art therapy techniques, so mostly we are drawing, painting, using clay and movement. Also, I include beautiful tools provided by different psychotherapy schools I was trained on, sometimes adding to the process even coaching instruments.
