Children, young people and families can experience a range of strong, difficult or conflictual feelings which can be hard to make sense of. Sometimes these feelings can be expressed in ways which are distressing, frightening, troubling or cause conflict in family life. Dr Burgess offers a consistent and safe space for young people and families to explore and reflect on their experiences. Through such exploration he hopes to support young people and families make sense of the challenges they face, enable a full range of emotional expression and find new ways of relating to each other and managing challenges.
He draws on a number of models to understand psychological distress including attachment, mentalisation, psychoanalytic and systemic approaches.
