About me and my therapy practice
I have worked for 18 years within a pupil referral unit so have a huge amount of experience working daily with children who have social , emotional and severe behaviour issues . Having this experience and knowledge may help guide a young person through the system, and help them make the right choices . I also work within a local independent school as their school based counsellor. This means I work from the ages of 5 up till 18 , within both primary school and high school .
This helps hugely when working with children and young people because I understand how the education system works and can point parents in the right direction. This often helps them understand their child and how they can help them. I work extensively with young people with a diagnosis of ADHD , ASD , PTSD .
I have also worked for several years with a local charity that helps adults both male and female who have experienced rape and sexual abuse. This work is specialised which I have trained specifically for .
I will hopefully be undertaking my supervision diploma this year . This means I will be offering supervision at a discounted price until I am qualified .
I am passionate about my job and mostly work eclectically however ,I am predominantly person centred in my approach. I work creatively and try to see beyond the counselling room, so if you prefer to work outside we can, or get creative using art. I also work with children using play therapy and art. Music is also important to me which I also use within my practice .
I am currently training my dog to be a therapy aid , so if you like animals and would like some company throughout a session I can bring my dog.
I hope working together will offer resolutions and help with your journey to understand yourself. Anything is achievable if you want change, and I will do my utmost to help you get to where you want to be ....
