  • Faculty: Faculty of Engineering and Informatics

I have a 17 year work history in both the public and private sector to include industry experience and involvement in person-centred environments. Over the years I have worked extensively in administrative roles, progressing to middle management and more recently in guidance counselling within the Adult Education Guidance Initiative (AEGI). My education encompasses training in office information systems, a Bachelor of Arts in Healthcare Management (2.1) and a Master of Arts in Guidance Counselling (1.1). I undertook research for post graduate study with FETAC learners to explore the efficacy of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as a helping technique in adult guidance counselling (10,000 word dissertation). I subsequently completed further research to compare the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) interventions and the conventional forms of guidance interventions in adult guidance counselling practice (20,000 word dissertation). Following a recent call for papers from a UK career education and counselling journal, I have worked on a submission for consideration on eclecticism in adult guidance counselling. If successful, this will be print-ready in late February 2015. In my role as a lecturer, I have a desire to empower the student towards autonomy in the educational setting and as a life skill. I enjoy mentoring and facilitating the students’ educational development and practical skills for application in the work environment.
