Hi I’m Cheron, Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a Specialist Teacher and Assessor for Special, Educational Needs
My passion is empowering young people to have their voice, understand their emotions and grow into the person they want to become.
As an Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counsellor who trained at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (I.A.T.E), I work with young people aged between 12 – 25 years. I am also a Trauma Informed TISUK practitioner and a Healing Together Facilitator supporting young people who have experienced domestic abuse or ongoing stress and anxiety. I am a BACP member.
My experience extends to being a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-Ordinator (SENDCo), Specialist Dyslexia Teacher and Access Arrangements Assessor with over 20 years teaching experience in both the Primary and Secondary Sectors. I have considerable professional understanding of SEND and many years experience supporting trainee teachers in SEND, Mental Health and Trauma Informed Practices. I continue to work as a SENCo in a school so my practice stays up to date and relevant.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, meeting friends for tea and cake (can’t beat Yorkshire tea) and walking our two gorgeous dogs Belle and May.
