Nicole Henry’s private practice was established in 2018 due to the limited access for other children outside of the schools that she was working in. Nicole graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Counselling and went on to further develop her skill set with Place 2 Be. After completing her supervised hours she was very certain that she wanted to pursue this as her career. The fulfilment and joy of the children when overcoming their obstacles was priceless with a huge benefit of reducing mental health.
When connecting with other counsellors and therapist Nicole went on to birth Tea of Therapy, as they too had the same enthusiasm as herself when it came to supporting children. Tea of Therapy is an platform to promote therapeutic practice to children, parents and schools to support children and young people improve mental health within local communities.
Statistics have shown by Children’s Society 2008, 10% of children and young people aged 5-16years have a clinically diagnosable mental health problem, yet 70% of the children and adolescence who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at the sufficiently early age. It is key that we as parents notice a change in our children’s behaviour and emotions we need to speak to someone to seek help so our children are not subject to mental health.
Nicole sets out to help and support parents/guardians and schools to improve the mental health of children and young people. Let me help your children reach their full potential by having fun, creative, thought provoking and practical sessions to manage their mental health/ personal circumstances.
