I work three days a week as a lecturer in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) at the University of Worcester and The Learning Institute.   For the rest of the week I work in practice as a counsellor for children, young people and families.  I was a secondary school English teacher for 15 years and retrained 10 years ago to become a counsellor. Having completed Systemic Practice training I now work with families as part of a Family Therapy team in the community and in my local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.  I am also a qualified and practising counselling supervisor.
