my professional interests
my professional interests

I have an interest in counselling adults with learning difficulties. If you someone you know has a learning difficulty, and wants to see a counsellor with experience of working with people with a learning difficulty in a counselling setting, please get in touch with me.

I have experience in teaching and training. I have 6 years teaching experience in secondary schools, both in the UK and Japan. During this time I have specialised in working with students presenting challenging  behaviour and safeguarding issues. I have delivered training for staff and teachers, both in the UK and Japan.

I hope to be offering training and CPD in the future. If you are developing a course and would be interested in working with me, please contact me through this website.

my personal interests

I enjoy playing and listening to music, running, cooking and yoga.

I also love reading, and agree with CS Lewis, when he said "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."
