  • Description

    I live in London and work in the education sector as apsychotherapeutic Counsellor with adolescents who have not been succesful in mainstream schools and therefore need extra support for various reasons. I now work with children with disabilities especially those on Autistic Spectrum and their familiesI love travelling and experiencing other cultures. To relax I like to attend theatre or cinema or musical concerts . I also belong to a choir and a walking group. I have four children, all of whom have now left home but with whom I am still very involved. I also now have three grandchildren aged 2 yrs,4yrs and 7yrs all of whom are very energetic! I love dancing too.

  • What skills do you have?

    I am a Counsellor, so I am good at listening and communicating, I used to be a keen gardner so can also help in garden, I work with teenagers and have brought up four children of my own so I am experienced with childcare. I have previously worked teaching English as a second or other language so I can help with lanaguae practice, I have also previously worked running educational tours for students, and tourists so I can be a good tour guide,etc. Because I work with a lot of students with complex traumas and have worked with their families too in tower hamlets I would be interested in working with charities supporting families in crisis situations or providing support services to underprivileged sectors of society or communities.
