I have worked with children for over 10 years, I began by studying a Teaching Assistant NVQ and then went on to support children in a local infant school. I taught interventions, studied to become an HLTA and did all I could to gain knowledge to enable children to succeed.
Last year after yet another lock down I noticed how the children were struggling, they had missed so much and the pressure to make up the lost time in school was really prominent.
I studied Mindfulness and Childrens counselling along with training to become a Relax Kids coach to deepen my knowledge to help children that were struggling.
I have trained as an Advanced Drawing and Talking practitioner to broaden the services I offer and have supported a number of children since June 2021.

I am fully insured, along with a DBS certificate.
