Christine has been working with my teenage son for about 3 months. My son was bullied and socially excluded at school and as a result he had lost belief in himself. I was keen to find a therapist for him that did not dwell so much on his pain in the past, but would give him the tools to build himself up and look forward to a brighter future.
In the time that he has been seeing Christine, my son found his voice and now stands up for his opinions. He also listens far better than he ever has before and seems more able to open his heart at the same time. He is certainly less defensive and I am overjoyed that he and his father are reconnecting and enjoying each other's company as men. L... is now more open to developing some skills, something which he always refused before and is even visiting an elderly friend with dementia weekly and handling aspects of care that would challenge any teenage boy. I am also beginning to see some wisdom emerge which is entirely his and it is marvellous to see the confidence - skill building - confidence cycle now in play. It's all up from here!
