Counselling for Teachers
Prior to taking a career break, I spent 5 years as a secondary school and SEN teacher in Stoke-on-Trent and a further 5 years as an education welfare officer working with teachers in North Staffordshire to assist pupils who were struggling to access education. As a placement during my Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy I provided therapeutic play sessions within a school in South Manchester. Whilst there I saw the commitment and dedication of a hard-working staff putting the best interests of their pupils ahead of their own wellbeing.
Weekly I have seen the untapped potential that counselling has to help those working in the extremely demanding world of Education. I’m looking forward to offering teacher-to-teacher counselling sessions in Newcastle-under-Lyme where you can have some confidential time out without the need for a filter or unnecessary contextual explanations.
Are you a teacher or do you know a teacher who would appreciate a helping hand? If so, please contact me.
