The Speaker, Linda Kent:
Linda Kent (Fd Sc, NNEB)
Linda introduces herself, “Having trained as a Nursery Nurse, I’ve worked with children in a variety of settings, including Hospital; Private Nursery, Children’s Centre; Schools (Nursery, Primary & Secondary). I’ve worked extensively with Children who have Additional Needs; Children on the Autistic Spectrum as well as other Neuro Diversities and children from other Nationalities than my own.
I’ve been Play Lead on Paediatric Hospital Ward, Playgroups Supervisor, Youth Leader, ran Children’s Clubs, School Governor and Children’s Practitioner for NSPCC. Qualifying as a Counsellor in 2012, I worked many years for Relate.
I’ve always seen supporting parents/carers as an important part of the work, and now, as a private, self-employed Children & Young People’s Counsellor, I am able to do so more fully by encouraging and helping equip parents/ carers/ significant others to nurture resilient, happy children in our modern world.
I’m also a Wife and Mother to two wonderful grown up young men.”
