Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2013 I counselled for a short period of time, on a voluntary basis for Place2Be, a Children's School Counselling service. This involved counselling in a school in Salford, Greater Manchester and undergoing their basic training.
Since moving to Derbyshire in 2015 I was offered a part time counselling position as School Counsellor at a Pupil Referral Unit in Nottingham for children & Young People Exclude from Mainstream School. In addition, I have since started working in an Alternative Education Provision for Children and Young People who have more specific needs.
Counselling Children & Young People
I have also gained further qualifications in Counselling Children & Young People. I have a current DBS and up to date safeguarding training.
Children can have a tough time with a wide range of issues. This can result in behaviour changes, being withdrawn, argumentative or aggressive. They can become anxious and sad. Quite often they have difficulty with feelings they don't understand.
If your child or young person is having difficulties please contact me for an initial telephone consultation. I will allocate some time to listen to your concerns, and look for a way forward.
