I was a counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care for five years and was also a volunteer counsellor in the Staff Occupational Health department of a hospital.
As well as being a counsellor, I work part time in children’s services as part of a team that deals with safeguarding, child protection concerns and family support needs.
Before training as a counsellor, I worked in education for many years including as a secondary school teacher. I’m therefore very familiar with the stresses and challenges that a workplace can bring. I have also worked in Adult Education.
I have a positive outlook on life and am warm and down to earth.
