PARENT SUPPORT ADVISER
Hi, I’m Ros. I have been with TIC+ since 2005, shortly after qualifying as a Counsellor (Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling).
Training, Qualifications and Experience
I have worked across the services we offer in Primary and Secondary Schools, Colleges, as a Face to Face counsellor. Being offered a School Counsellor position at Tewkesbury School, for 7 years, gave me a broader experience which was of huge value to me. Since TIC+ started offering online counselling to their services I was immediately up for this new challenge and am still working 2 to 3 shifts a week with young people online.
Now it’s so exciting to be part of the Parent Support Team. As a parent myself and step Grandma, seeing my own children navigate their way through the tough times of adolescence, exam pressures, friendships, bullying etc. is confusing and very challenging. Holding that balance as a parent is, I think one of the hardest challenges that we face. I am looking forward to meeting you, listening and hearing your concerns and worries, so that together we can find a way forward for you.
