Chavala Parker - Child & Adolescent Counsellor BSc MSc MBACP
Hello! My name's Chavala (pronounced ‘Harvala’) and I'm a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, specialising in therapeutic work with children and young people. I offer Talking Therapies and Creative Therapies.
I've been practising as a full-time Counsellor and Psychotherapist for several years now, offering one-to-one counselling and group counselling across the North-West, counselling for several charities, organisations and children's homes, alongside managing three counselling services. Now I work full-time as a freelance Counsellor, counselling children and young people in all sorts of settings, from schools to children's homes. So, over the years, I've gained extensive experience working with a diverse range of clients and issues.
It is increasingly common for children to access counselling or therapeutic support for a variety of reasons, for example following stress or trauma, which could be as a result of a bereavement or family break up, or for help with any specific issue affecting the child’s emotional well-being, which may include anger management, difficulty in forming effective friendships or low self-esteem.
My goal is simple – to make people happier!
