Last evening it was a pleasure to meet 26 amazing Young people from Wiltshire Scouts who attended a presentation Evening at Marlborough Town Hall.Each was presented with achievement awards from the Chief Scouts Gold Award, the highest award for the Scout Section up to the Queens Scout Award, the highest for Explorer and Network Scouts.It was great to hear of the exciting exploits and activities they have completed as well as learn of the skills that they have learned and passed on to others.The awards were presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire Mrs Sarah Rose Troughton, who is also our Scout County President.I offer evening appointments and also Skype Counselling.Depending on individual clients needs I offer both long and short term counselling.The ATC years began as an adult instructor at Westbury’s 68 Squadron, where his sons Stuart and Martin and daughter Erin all paraded – and where Isabel Besent, one of his ten grandchildren, is now a cadet.
My background was in Child development and Early years.
Retirement is definitely not on the agenda – “I still enjoy every minute of it,” he adds.
Alan received his award from Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant, Sarah Troughton, during ceremonies at the Town Hall, Devizes.
Working with Children and teenagers can be more active than with adult therapy and so I use a wide range of resources.
Many children naturally express themselves in their play and in the imaginary world and this can aid the counselling process a great deal.
Family work focuses on the relationship dynamics within a family and helps to improve communication and understanding of each other.
