Denise is a counsellor and child developmentalist who has been working with children for over 30 years.

Denise prefers as a first step to work with parents. An assessment of the child's development in all areas - cognitive, emotional, moral, social and physical can enhance the parents' ability to engage more constructively with their child in everyday situations. In the face of more persistent problems,tailored support and interventions are developed. The goal is to support the parent to take charge before exposing their child or teen unnecessarily to clinical intervention.

Although children can give informed assent to therapy, Denise finds that many problems can be overcome if developmental processes are given a leg-up by the parent. Failing this Denise may suggest a children's group program or meetings with the family at home.
