I have been working in schools as a Counsellor for over 13 years with Hove YMCA, the Priory School in Lewes and as the lead counsellor at Shoreham Academy for five years. My previous role was as a Primary Mental Health Worker at CAMHS in Brighton so I have extensive experience working with young people and mental health. Prior to this I was an Advocate and worked with children in the care system ensuring their rights were upheld and their voice respected.  I have also worked with children and young people for over four years in the voluntary sector as a Youth Advice Worker.
