School Counsellor

Miss Green, Counsellor

Green k

Miss Green grew up and has lived in the local area all her life, attending secondary school at Emerson Park Seniors in Hornchurch.

She has worked in a number of fields, beginning in her Father’s Greengrocer’s shop as a child, going on to work for a publishing company in London after finishing college.

Miss Green began working here in 2011 as part of the administrative team, during which time she gained a wealth of experience in supporting students and their families.  This laid the groundwork to allow her to begin a career in counselling, successfully gaining a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2019.  Miss Green is continuing her professional development by currently studying for her Level 5 Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, both qualifications are accredited by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).  She is also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which is the recognised ethical framework that supports her in her work as a professional therapeutic counsellor. 

As school counsellor Miss Green works closely with the pastoral and safeguarding teams in ensuring our students’ positive mental health is always supported. She is passionate and enthusiastic about her role, using a humanistic approach to enable young people to think about their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions, with the emphasis being on self-development and achieving their highest potential.

Miss Green provides support to students individually as well as in small groups, and is available to help with a range of issues such as stress and anxiety, grief and loss, depression, family or home concerns, anger management, sexuality, exam stress, relationship issues, fears and phobias, self-harm, self-confidence and self-esteem.

Whatever challenges our students may be experiencing, speaking about them in therapy is the start of these challenges having less impact on their lives.  Miss Green’s role is vital in bringing about effective change and encouraging positive mental health.  She provides a safe and non-judgemental environment offering young people unconditional positive regard and empathy as they grow and develop. This can lead to greater insight, healing and progress.  A person’s early experiences, both negative and positive, can impact on their present way of thinking, behaving and relating to others, therefore it is important to help to make those links between past and present  to increase self-awareness and bring about change.
