In 2014, I commenced as a school counsellor at an independent K-12 school. I continue to work part-time in this role, providing individual support to children and adolescents experiencing a range of mental health problems, familial, relational, behavioural and life challenges. Engagement with parents/carers has again been key. In this role, it has also been my pleasure to consult with and provide support to school staff, and to be involved in running a range of groups aimed at promoting the wellbeing of children and adolescents in the primary and secondary schools.
After completing my Master of Psychology (Educational and Developmental) in 2009, I began my career working for the NSW disability service provider, Ageing, Disability and Homecare. In this role, I developed a great appreciation and respect for people with intellectual disabilities and the people who care for them. The role also exposed me to a range of other disabilities (such as Autism Spectrum Disorders) and introduced me to the importance of collaboration in providing a therapeutic service.
