Terry Williamson

Child and Family Clinician

Terry is a warm and fully qualified Counselor who has enjoyed a long career in a special education setting. She brings years of experience working with people of all ages to her role as a Child and Family Clinician at Kids First.

Terry supports families whose children struggle with learning, social, emotional, and behaviourial difficulties. She is an accredited facilitator of the 123 Magic and Emotion Coaching approach to behaviour management and also has specific experience and training in providing support to anxious children.

Terry takes a holistic, strengths-based approach to therapy and has a special professional interest in supporting families of children aged 3 to 16 who have additional learning, social and behavioural needs as well as children aged 6 to 14 who struggle to manage their emotions and behaviour.

She also helps anxious children who need practical ways to overcome their fears and worries and parents who need guidance to create calmer households and systems that will give their children the structure and stability they need to succeed.

Terry’s professional experience also makes her a perfect guide for parents of children who have a new diagnosis of disability or neurodiversity and need help to make informed choices for their child.
