Fear of the dark & worry about school

One of our Clinical Psychologists met Oliver and his Mother together and individually, to find out about the difficulties and to understand their goals for therapy. Oliver said he felt scared, when he woke up at night, was at home or walking home in the dark: he wanted the horrible feeling to stop.  

Oliver cried, which was OK with us.  He said he felt embarrassed and it was hard when he didn’t do well on a test or didn’t come first in something he thought he was good at.  Oliver explained he worried he would slip behind at school, there was too much homework and teachers didn’t like or notice him, even when he had his hand up.

Low self-esteem & low mood

When Penny called Composure, she was very upset and wanted help with feeling low and crying all the time.  Penny didn’t think she was a strong person but we already knew she was brave because she had picked up the phone and asked for help.

Our psychologist met with Penny, discussed her difficulties in more detail and helped her identify specific goals for the therapeutic work. Penny preferred that everything remain confidential from her family, despite their support.  That was fine with us and we recommended and agreed with Penny that a brief letter be sent to Penny’s GP.
