As well as providing counselling and listening support in a number of schools, I also have experience in mentoring, tutoring and youth support work.
This has involved work as diverse as accompanying young people during live and recorded music performances, creating and facilitating small musical groups, assisting with college applications and interviews, participating in training courses and sporting tournaments alongside young people, providing 1:1 academic tuition, and arranging and supporting on trips to a variety of venues including film studios, adventure residential centres, as well as other places of work.
Fostering independence through confidence is a big motivating factor for me, and I strive to promote the learning and consolidating of new skills and talents through encouragement, regardless of the person before me; I wish to give everybody a chance, a voice, a platform or the opportunities to cast aside old labels or reputations, and aim to help them to develop their own, honing a persona which fits them, not one which has been ascribed to them.
This is an ethos which I am extremely passionate about, where I continue to thrive and excel, and encourage those whom I work with to do the same.
