'I have been inspired by your wisdom, enriched by your knowledge and moved by your compassion' (S, Guildford) 

I am a qualified teacher with experience of teaching counselling at all levels in both further education and higher education colleges. Since the beginning of 2008 I have programme managed and taught on the Foundation Degree in Counselling and the B.A (Hons) in Counselling at Guildford College.

Programme management has provided me with experience of developing, maintaining, reviewing and future planning a higher education course.

On the Foundation Degree and B.A (Hons) I have gained experience teaching short-term, long term, in a structured style, experientially and in a student centred way.

In addition to this I have developed and delivered training in schools to educate and inform young people on a variety of topics as part of the 'being healthy' agenda.

I am familiar with exploring the needs of a training provider and developing training specifically targeted to meet these needs. Further more, I have spend time in companies/agencies looking at the longer term training needs and created plans and developed packages to ensure their training objectives are achieved. 

Some of the counselling related workshops I have developed and delivered are -

  • Working with client's who self-harm/injure
  • Working with a client using street drugs
  • Counselling children
  • Counselling young people
  • Introduction to supervision
  • Mental health awareness
  • Maintaining an ethical focus
