Monday evenings Semester 2
This unit of study will further expand on the knowledge and skills developed in Child and Adolescent Counselling 1.
Master of Clinical Counselling, Grad Dip Counselling, Grad Dip Religious Education, Bachelor of Education (Primary).
My original training is in primary education and I have taught in various Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) for more than 16 years. My passion is working with children and adolescence, especially those who present with mental health issues. In 2010, I began my counselling journey and have worked as a school counsellor since 2013.
I am currently working at LaSalle Catholic College in Bankstown as the College Counsellor. Over the years I have trained in Creative Therapies such as Sandplay and Art Therapy and continue to incorporate these therapies into the counselling work I do at LaSalle.
My Christian faith and the values Morling College espouses underpin the work that I do as a College Counsellor. Working with young people who present with varying mental health issues and helping them to become self-aware in regards to their own “personal, spiritual and social identity” is a humbling and rewarding experience.
