I am a versatile individual who is confident in relating to a wide range of adults and young people. I possess excellent written and verbal communication skills. In addition I have an acute understanding of risk assessments and safeguarding issues when working with vulnerable children and adults. I am particularly skilled at working with young people due to possessing a creative imagination and a special understanding of children with vulnerabilities. I am a reliable, trustworthy and conscientious individual who contributes well to team discussions.
I am efficient in thinking on my feet and producing creative outcomes when faced with a problem.
Currently I am in the process of completing a proffesional degree in Child and Adolescent Psycotherapy. Here I am learning how to work with children and young people (exhibiting emotional and behavioural disorders ) through therapeutic creative play and group facilitation.
I have also worked as a Probation Service Officer for the past 10 years where I have supported service users on a one to one basis as well as worked to assist them working collaboratively with on a multi agency basis.
