Hi, my name is Rachel.  I have been working as a TIC+ counsellor with children and young people since January 2017. 

I live in Gloucestershire and you will often find me walking my dog around our gorgeous parks and in the beautiful Cotswold Hills.  I have three children who I enjoy spending time with (when the teenagers will let me) watching movies and eating pizza.  I love reading and nothing excites me more than having a new book delivered from Amazon!

Training, Qualifications and Experience

I am very glad to be a parental support advisor.  I am very passionate that ‘knowledge is power’ and I know how valuable it can be for parents to receive support and advise feeling better equipped to support their children and young people.   I know what a difficult ‘job’ being a parent is through having children of my own and through many hours of listening to young people in a counselling role.

I have a BA Honours Degree in Counselling and an Advanced Specialist Course in Counselling Children and Young People.
