Kaya Winney

Counsellor

Hi, I'm Kaya and I'm an integrative child and adolescent counsellor. I have worked with young people for most of my professional life - initially as a teacher/educator and currently as a counsellor. I specialise in working with children and adolescents and support them with a range of issues that include anxiety, depression, self-harm, low self-esteem, and bullying. We work using various approaches and techniques that I adapt individually to the needs of each young person I see. These include elements of art and play therapy, person-cantered approaches, attachment theory, body psychotherapy and psychoeducation. I also incorporate elements of mindfulness and breath work into the sessions. I greatly enjoy supporting young people in understanding themselves and their behaviours better, and see counselling as a collaborative process between the young person and the counsellor. Outside of work, I enjoy Latin dancing, drawing and yoga.
