Vanessa, founder and managing director of Affinitas Counselling Services enjoys working with children, adolescents, and families. Her background includes (but not limited to); working with young families, working in school settings with children and adolescents who presented with a range of challenges including anxiety and depression, dyslexia, low school attendance, difficulties with social skills, and managing difficulties at home and at school, and self harming or suicidal behaviors.

Vanessa offers a trauma focused, dynamic and creative, informative and empathetic counselling approach to children and adolescents, and families. You will come away feeling confident and more skilled, and be provided a voice in the therapeutic process, choice, safety and a sense of collaboration. Vanessa will work alongside you to identify strengths and goals, and look at areas of improvement, and identify emotional, physical, social factors that may influence mental wellbeing. The client is the expert, and they choose what they want to talk about. As advised by clients, Vanessa offers the correct balance of providing strategies whilst also letting you make your own decisions and encouraging you to speak about what is working best for you. She also offers the right amount of homework, questioning, and reflecting to ensure the counselling is beneficial. If you are ready... let's get started!

Vanessa has trained with Lifeline, and is a qualified Crisis Support Worker and an approved Prepare/Enrich Facilitator (Membership No. 1328326).

Vanessa is an encouraging, friendly and nurturing counsellor. She believes everyone can rewrite their own story, is capable of change and growth and deserves to have their story heard.

She enjoys spending time with her husband and their 2 dogs, reading, doing Pilates, and walking in nature.
