A brief summary of my counselling history
I have a broad and varied working experience, with both young people and adults. I have worked in the voluntary sector, supporting people’s mental health through art and gardening, and as a counsellor with adults in a centre providing low-cost counselling.
I worked for many years in a secondary school providing pastoral support and Thrive sessions for teenagers with trauma-based emotional and behavioural difficulties. Working in this context contributed to a growing desire to deepen my understanding and skills in counselling and to be able to support adults, as well as young people, to process difficult and traumatic experiences. I now focus on working with adults.
