Kia ora koutou, my name is Alice Springford-Gough. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy to work with children and adolescents who are seeking support with behavioural, emotional or social difficulties. I am both passionate and experienced in supporting young people and their whānau/family.
Client Types : Children, Adolescents and Families.
Issues Covered : anxiety, depression, grief and loss, loneliness, aggression, trauma recovery, developmental disorders and those seeking support with their gender or sexuality, self-harm and suicidality, self-esteem issues, and emotional dis-regulation.
Approach : My approach is client and family/whānau led. The process is based on age, gender, sexuality, culture and preference. My skills include talk therapy, art, play, sand tray, mindfulness and coping skills. I work alongside the client and their whānau to gain insights into any issues either the child or whānau are experiencing. The psychotherapeutic process aims to enhance connectivity, emotional understanding, resilience and healing.
