Sarah Badger – Child Therapist
I am a qualified and registered Occupational Therapist with many years experience working in both physical and mental health. I have experience working in Children’s and Adolescent’s Mental Health Services (CAMHS). I provide therapy to children using a range of counselling techniques including ‘play’, active listening and structured activities. I also have DBS clearance to enhanced level.
I am a trained facilitator in running a parenting programme for both children and teenagers. It uses emotionally intelligent parenting; the course is called ‘Tuning into Kids’. Emotional intelligence is about using your emotions to guide you through the world.
I work in schools counselling students; helping them with their emotional and mental health. I support and provide clinical supervision for teachers, teaching assistants and PFSAs.
