About me

Hello, I'm Lisa-Jayne, Therapist for The Youth Fairy. I am a Solution Focused practitioner, dedicated to improving the emotional well being and mental health of children and teenagers, suffering from


- Anxiety
- Stress
- Anger
- Emotional regulation
- Low confidence.
- Fears and phobias

I offer a 50-minute (free) consultation face to face in Hove or online, to discuss your child's situation, their best hopes and how  I can help them to regain more emotional control and see them feeling happier, calmer and much more confident in themselves.
As well as helping them to make these changes, I believe that educating them on their mental health is such an important part of the change process.

So I'll explain to you and your child how the brain works to create their specific problems and associated feelings, behaviours or symptoms. Once they have this knowledge and understanding they can begin to get some control over it.

I believe the Solution Focused approach works really well for young people, empowering them to think about how they WANT things to be and working towards those positive behaviour changes.


I use a mixture of talking therapy and relaxation in the session. I also provide a relaxation audio to help with any sleep problems they are having and support the process.

Who I work with

Children and teenagers

Training, Qualifications and Experience

I have worked with children for over 26 years, starting as a nursery and then as a TA in a school for children with severe learning difficulties including Autism and challenging behaviour. I moved through Primary and secondary before joining the FE college to work with 16-19 year olds, as an Lead TA, teaching functional skills and preparing for transition to adulthood.


In 2016 I was part of a project setting up a new college for clients aged 19-25 to teach life skills including focusing on interests and work experience/employment as appropriate.
 

I provided Respite care at home through Barnardo's, to children with a variety of needs for over 10 yrs.
I decided to retrain as a Therapist and I am passionate about helping young people using this approach.
