Additional Experience of Working with Complex Needs in an Educational Setting

During my training as an MA Integrative Art Psychotherapist, I worked for over five years at The Iffley Academy in Oxford, a secondary school leading holistic and therapeutic approaches for SEN and behavioural adolescent students. In this role I was tasked to support the implementation of education and development of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. In this setting I worked primarily as a Teaching Assistant, as well as grading therapeutic support daily to students who were often in crisis, learning to manage and control overwhelming impulses and feelings. This role deeply informed my understanding of developmental stages, attachment, and the need to respond intuitively to the complex presentation of looked after young people, ADHD, ASD, SEN, trauma and those from unstable socio-economic backgrounds. I greatly value the need to create safe spaces for those suffering from mental health symptoms to explore the complexities that emerge during challenging times.

“ Just as our bodies are made of many parts that form a dynamic, interwoven system that works together, so it is with our psyches. We are more awake, alive, and complex than we know.”
