1:1 Sessions in Education, Organisations and Private
I am an independent support professional working as a Young Persons Adviser in education, privately and in the community. Supporting young people.
I offer information, advice and guidance on a wide range of challenges such as self esteem and confidence, anxiety, emotional regulation, feelings and behaviours, relationships, identity and self image, family difficulties, bullying, exploitation, substance misuse, safety, harmful sexual behaviours, social media, self harm and much more.
My work involves a mixture of mentoring, coaching, mindfulness and therapeutic approaches, along with using attachment based practice to compliment the way I work.
Currently I’m working with ages 10-21 years. This range can start from year 6 at Primary School (supporting the transition into year 7) through to the teenage years at Secondary School and early adulthood.
Sessions are tailored to suit the needs of an individual and can take place in an education setting such as school, in the community or in the family home. Working collaboratively with the young person to identify their barriers to progression, supporting them to achieve their goals, and reach their full potential.
My work aims
The overall aim of my work is to improve outcomes for young people by:
- Raising aspirations
- Improving behaviour and attendance
- Developing resilience
- Improving communication skills
- Reducing the number of young people deemed at risk of disengaging in education
- Improving social and emotional well-being
- Promoting positive activities
- Building confidence and self esteem
- Supporting the transition to adulthood
How to make a referral
If you are a school, college or organisation and would like to arrange some sessions for a young person you can contact me direct to have an informal discussion, or you can complete the referral form and contact me to arrange a confidential collection.
If you are a parent or guardian you may prefer just to contact me for an informal discussion, however you can complete the referral form if you wish.
What happens once a referral is completed?
Once the referral form has been completed, an amount of sessions will be agreed with a lead person in school/college or organisation or parent/guardian, who has authority over funding.
You will receive a welcome pack with information including my policies and procedures, giving you an overview of how I work. Some schools prefer me to work within their policies which can be agreed at the commencement of work.
What happens when funded sessions come to an end?
At the end of the funded sessions with a young person and with their consent, a named person in the school (usually safeguarding lead or pastoral manager or parent/guardian) will receive a confidential outcomes summary. This gives a little insight into the sessions completed, outcomes and any recommended next steps.
Booking on a ‘per session’ basis or ‘per day’ available.
- £40 per session, if you prefer to book on a session by session basis
- £30 per session, if you block book 6 or more in a row
To book exclusively for a school day please contact me - concessions may be available.
We can arrange a free 30 minute session with the young person to see if this support could make a difference for you.
