What is Tri-Unity about?

Tri-Unity is about Wellness. I offer a holistic approach to well-being:

Well-being:“The state of being comfortable, healthy and happy”

Well-beingencompasses how we are physically, mentally andemotionally/spiritually. Well-being goes much deeper, it can beaffected by external or internal forces. It is all inter connected,if we feel sad this may manifest in a bad cold for example. If wehave hurt our leg this may make us depressed. If we are affected by aloss we may question our beliefs about ourselves or our understandingof our world. Physically we may not have disease but are we fit?Fitness is an amalgamation of cardio vascular fitness, coordination,agility, stamina and strength. Mental health can be positive ornegative, it is not only anxiety, depression or being schizophrenic(example) but it’s how resilient we are, how we perceive our world,what is important to us will affect how well we are emotionally andmentally.

Tri-Umph@Tri-Unity is about promoting confidence, self awareness and the power to make positive changes.

Children & Young People Counselling

More than ever our children and young people are subject to many stresses. Pressure to conform to media stereotypes, pressure to do well at school, family separation, peer pressure and bullying to name a few of the issues presented to our kids.

These stresses are difficult enough for an adult to cope with but our children have little experience to draw upon, may feel they have no one they can talk to or believe they are the only ones to feel this way resulting in conditions such as anxiety, depression, anger and behavioural problems. In extreme cases self-harm or even suicide ideation can seem the only way out to a young person.

Wales is the only part of the UK where counselling services are legally required in schools however this service is often oversubscribed and poorly funded leaving an otherwise excellent provision limited to a few sessions per child. CAMHS (Children & Adolescent Mental Health Services) have long waiting times which can be as long as 12 months.

Counselling offers the young person a confidential* safe space to explore their concerns, allowing them to talk free from judgement or pressure to be. Using the Proactive Approach developed by Geldard & Geldard I use a combination of Child Centered and Cognitive Behaviour therapies to arm your child with a toolkit of coping strategies to increase their resilience and self-esteem. In a relaxed environment I incorporate activities such as Theraplay, creative strategies, sand tray and psychoeducational tools into the session.
