Experience

The majority of my experience is with children and young people, but I have enjoyed working with adults too.

I have over thirteen years’ experience at Waldegrave Secondary school, working with students in the Special Educational Needs department, with issues such as:

  • Challenging behaviour
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • Aspergers Syndrome
  • Depression

Additionally, I have worked with disadvantaged Year 11 students over the past ten years, on issues, including self-esteem; being a carer to a parent/sibling; dealing with addiction; gang membership, keeping safe sexually and abuse-free; using social media safely; dealing with exam stress.  Similarly, I worked for one academic year at Reach Academy with Place2Be, counselling children aged seven, eleven and fourteen, with a wide range of issues.  Finally, I am currently working at Phoenix Services in Feltham; I have worked with adults here for a year, covering a broad range of issues, including complex trauma, anxiety and anger management.
