I am an English expat living in Munich and parent to two children who are happily settled within the Munich international community. I have a Psychology (BA hons) degree and a Masters (MA) in Education from the University of the West of England. I later gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Practice in Educational Settings from the University of Exeter in Devon while working in schools, supporting children and young people struggling with a wide range of mental health issues. Upon receiving this qualification, I became an accredited member of the British Psychological Society.
I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of people with complex needs and barriers to learning within both a psychological and educational context. In my role as an Education Mental Health Practitioner, I worked as part of a clinical team on a 1:1 basis with children both primary and secondary school aged, using evidence based cognitive behavioural techniques and a person centred counselling approach to manage and support with difficulties such as;
In addition to this I have worked with parents and families, consulted teaching staff on how to effectively manage arising issues in their classes and how to incorporate this into Individual Education Plans (IEP’s), facilitated support groups and advised on whole school approaches to mental health and wellbeing.
Currently I collaborate with counsellors at the Bavarian International School here in Munich and have run a series of workshops for 15-16 year olds embarking on exams, providing strategies and support for managing exam stress and anxiety.
I have witnessed positive outcomes for children and adolescents as a result of early intervention and improved accessibility to mental health and wellbeing support and feel strongly this underpins an effective educational environment and educational attainment.
I provide a safe, age-appropriate and non-judgemental space for individuals to discuss difficulties or challenges they are facing related to those listed above. Using my experience of counselling, mental health issues and education, I seek to work collaboratively with clients with a solution focussed approach towards achieving desired outcomes for both personal wellbeing and educational attainment.
