I have 30 years experience in drug and alcohol work and related problems. I have worked with many people over the years who have traumatic experiences and come from dysfunctional families. I have also worked for a Counselling agency as well as volunteering for a hospice.
I am currently running a Counselling service in a college and have an understanding of the issues that Young people are facing.
I can work with qualified Counsellors or trainees. I use a holistic approach and can adapt how I work to suit my Supervisees.
