Youth Worker and Wellbeing Coach
Thanks for stopping by.
Based in Kidlington, Oxford, I’m an award-winning Youth Worker who’s been working with children and young people across Oxfordshire for more than 20 years to create safe spaces where they can learn to handle the difficulties of life, feel better about themselves, and have their voice heard.
Each young person is an individual and deserves to be treated as such, with care and compassion, and a plan that works for them to bring positive, powerful change in their world. I combine my experience working in and with schools and charities across Oxfordshire, as well as a background within various arts organisations, to provide a positive and playful approach to my work. Their thoughts and feelings are important – let’s work with them to understand and express them.
The bulk of my work sees me supporting in either one-to-one settings or small groups to overcome anxieties, boost confidence, and improve self-esteem. I’ve launched and relaunched youth services and worked across the education and third sectors, gaining a wealth of experience in primary and secondary schools, as well as charities, and have trained in trauma-informed practice.
As a member of the Institute of Youth Work and a JNC-registered worker, I aim to uphold best practice in all work I undertake.
