Well-being Workshops for Schools and other Groups
As well as individual therapeutic work I provide one-off or ongoing
group workshops on emotional, psychological
and social issues, positive relationships, and well-being
to improve all students’ emotional intelligence, or to support
students with special needs or emotional/behavioural problems in a
group setting. Workshops can be on general emotional well-being or
specific issues such as bullying or as a response
to a particular traumatic event eg an earthquake
or a problem you have noticed in your school. They may include creative
arts or drama activities. I can also offer training workshops, talks
or on-going supervision for staff on emotional well-being, child
protection and abuse prevention, anti-bullying,
etc or workshops/discussion groups for parents about supporting their
children psychologically, dealing with problem behaviour positively,
etc. I am also open to regular employment to provide an all-round
inhouse service to your school.

Groups and Employers
I can deliver tailored training workshops or talks for volunteers
or staff on a variety of topics such as basic counselling/listening
skills, emotional well-being, cultural awareness, anti-bullying, child
abuse prevention, etc. I am also able to offer a counselling service
for individual employees or supervision for staff working with emotional
or traumatic issues.

I provide parenting support both for individual parents/families and
one-off or ongoing workshops/groups/training on parenting issues.
These can either follow the popular Triple P model accompanied by
videos and books (http://www.triplep.net)
or more flexible groups including facilitating support groups for
parents to support them parenting their children the best way possible
according to their own beliefs. Parenting within a foreign host culture
or in bi-cultural families can be very complex as people have different
assumptions about what is good parenting and this can lead to disputes,
anxiety about one's own or one's partner's parenting, or confusion
for children who experience differences. Making time to discuss this
with a professional in a dedicated space can make life more comfortable
for everyone and prevent small difficulties becoming bigger problems.
Thus these kind of groups can be very useful for international schools.

I am open to requests for other forms of group or individual work
which can take place in your venue if you have suitable space.
I can bring my own translator for Japanese groups. Alternatively,
groups can provide their own translation by arrangement to reduce
costs (this will require a preliminary briefing session with the translator
to ensure compatibility as this is sensitive work).
