A little about me
Hi my name is Steve, for most of my adult life I have worked in roles that have brought me into contact with people where positive communication was a distinct advantage.Having worked for British Telecommunications for over 20 years, where communication was key, I realised that I had a passion for working directly with people, and that my interpersonal skills were my greatest asset.This passion was the driving force in a change of career some 15 years ago.
Since those days I have developed my skills qualifying and working as a mentor,Personal Advisor and Teacher. Along the way I have continued with my personal development, with further training culminating with qualifications in Cognitive behavioural therapy (C.B.T), Hypnotherapy, Neuro linguistic programming, Life Coaching and Psychotherapeutic counseling.
My skills have enabled me to work in the fields of; mentoring children and young adults for Kent County Council, personal advising for young adults as a Connexions PA, helping with relationship issues, addictions, homelessness, career advice and working closely with young offenders.
I have trained as a licensed trainer for the Integrated domestic abuse program(I.D.A.P) for Kent Probation working with male offenders. I have also worked with the families and victims of domestic abuse, setting up workshops (Brave-heart) &(Young Chefs.) Which supported them with confidence and self-esteem building.
My continued work delivering healthy relationship workshops in secondary schools for Action for Children, was not only very engaging but also very important early intervention work.
My work as a teacher has been very instrumental in allowing me the chance to work with children and families to build confidence and self-esteem, watching them flourish as they fulfill their potential..
I am excited to be setting up the Resolve Clinic in Folkestone to continue with my passion for working with people giving them the inner strength to overcome any issues and problems that life throws at them.
My aim is to help them become as happy and fulfilled as they can, utilising all the experience and training accumulated over the years.
