I can work with students or staff online.
I have worked in schools for over 25 years as a Teacher, Education Welfare Officer, Manager and Counsellor. Teenagers and adults I work with say they have benefitted from my support and guidance in helping them cope with life’s challenges and helped them lead a more fulfilling life.
Students: I can offer ad hoc therapy for young people.
Staff: You may have staff who would benefit from some counselling for personal issues or from some counselling supervision for the challenging, sensitive work they undertake such as child protection and need a place to process the things they are working with.
Clients generally benefit from 50 minute therapy sessions weekly or fortnightly although adults can find real value in monthly appointments.
Confidentiality: Whilst counselling is confidential, I appreciate appropriate feedback about students can be extremely helpful for schools, so it is always explained to students in our first session that, where it will help them and only with their permission, we can share relevant information with school staff. The only exception is of course Safeguarding, guidelines of which I adhere to in the same way as schools.
Fees: £50 per 50 minute session.

I hold an up to date enhanced DBS disclosure and have full public liability insurance.
