I am a 47 year old mother to 3 fully independent young adults.
For the last 10 years I have been a school counsellor and inclusion centre manager. I have enjoyed working creatively to support young people with a broad range of difficulties, aged between 11 and 19. I have run and facilitated several creative summer school groups for young people of all ages and am currently a tutor on an Adlerian Counsellor Training course.
Summer this year, I was made redundant from the school, due to budget cuts, and I have to admit it has knocked my confidence a little. I have taken the last couple of months to really take stock of where I am now, get involved in some charity projects, redecorate my house and I am now looking at what I would like to do next!
