Butterfly Counselling

Child Experience

After qualifying, I worked for Alliance Psychological Services as part of their Child and Family Team.

Having gained five years experience at Alliance, in 2016 I left to begin working as a private, self-employed counsellor.

Since then, I have worked with schools, post-adoption agencies, solicitors, local authorities and private clients.

Experience with Autism

I have an extensive background working with children, adolescents and young people with autism, which has been enhanced by my work with a large, local autism charity. I have also worked to support parents of autistic children.

Experience with Post-Adoption

I also have a background working with children, adolescents, young people and parents with post-adoption difficulties.
