My name is Mollie and I work as a Teaching Assistant and Mentor at an Alternative Provision School in Devon.
I'm also a trainee counsellor who is undertaking her level 4 diploma in counselling. Once I've qualified my aim is to specialise in working with young people with various needs and mental health struggles. Eventually, somewhere in the future, I would love to run my own Alternative Provision Centre for young people who cannot fully access mainstream education making use of my varied skills around counselling, therapy, mindfulness & mental health awareness.
I'm a big advocate for mindfulness with young people as well. I've recently completed my Connected Kids certificate in mindfulness and meditation for children and young people and am due to start a course in July with the British Mindfulness Institute for young people aged 12 -18!
When I'm not focusing on work, school, counselling and all the other facets of my job, I'll being doing one of two other things. Either hiking across the moors, scrabbling up tors and taking pictures for my other Instagram account ( @mollieliz_ ), or I will be sat in my pyjamas, eating crappy food and watching just as crappy TV. It's one or the other, there's no middle ground!! 😁
