Thanking for taking your time to read about my profile.
I have a proven track record and have gained over 24years’ experience dealing with children, young people and adults with learning/behavioral difficulties, physical/emotional/sexual abuse or previous history of substance misuse, autism and trauma. These have been in several different settings, such as: schools, residential care homes, foster homes, security units, NHS hospitals, together with Local Authorities (Councils), privately clinic and throughout my jobs career – paid and as a volunteer. These decades of clinical work have been on the format of: individual, couple, group, family therapy sessions – face to face and via Skype.
