Welcome to Foundations Therapy
Is your child struggling with anxieties, bereavement, loss, nightmares, phobias, stress, worries, trauma, pain or unwanted and distressing habits?
What would it mean to see that smile again? A smile with carefree, self-assured resilience...
Perhaps you just want to help your child to feel more confident with learning, hobbies or social situations?
Foundations Therapy is your solution
Working in private practice, schools and the NHS, Dr Sharie Coombes is a qualified and experienced female psychodynamic neuropsychotherapist, solution-focused therapist and senior specialist children's hypnotherapist. She has worked with children and young people of all ages for 30 years and uses her unique blend of psychological therapies, with paediatric hypnotherapy if indicated and wanted, to effectively treat a range of childhood problems.
Dr Coombes can help families with children from the age of 2 where there are difficulties. Children from the age of 4 can benefit from paediatric hypnosis and child hypnotherapy through use of Creative Play Technique (CPT), a relaxing, familiar, gentle, safe and often rapid therapy technique which I have devised and tested over 10 years. Children over the age of 7 or 8 often respond extremely well to hypnotic work. Significant reductions in anxiety and stress can be achieved through this work, which is vital for enabling young people to do well in all aspects of their lives. Did you know that recent scientific studies have shown that children under stress have worse general health overall and that there is a link between childhood stress, obesity and depression?
