Counselling Manager (Targeted Youth Service)

COUNSELLING APPROACH

I have eighteen years’ experience as a counsellor, supporting the mental health and wellbeing of teenagers, young people and adults. I am available to offer your school, college, university or youth centre counselling support to your students, and service users, either in-house or from my office in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

 

I also incorporate Mindfulness and CBT tools which have successfully helped adults to manage negative thoughts, compulsive self-criticism, low mood/depression and anxiety.

SUPPORTING STAFF MEMBERS WITH SUPERVISION OR COUNSELLING

I am also available to offer a reflective practice or supervision to teaching staff, to aid them to be more effective in their role, or counselling support to help resolve any personal issues that’s encroaching on their professional lives, to help them to manage work-related stress, to mitigate burn-out, or to help them to return to work following a period of convalescence/absenteeism.
