Lulu has worked in education for over 35 years in England, Portugal, and Spain. She spent 4 years working at Knightsbridge School leading the pastoral care team and writing the PSHE curriculum. Over the years Lulu has acted as a Pastoral lead, Safeguarding and Well-being coach, and School Counsellor in the schools she has worked in both in England and abroad.
Outside of education, Lulu has a wealth of experience in teaching, mentoring, and guiding, and as a mother of three, she brings both personal experience and professional expertise to the role of counsellor and guide.
As a teacher the emotional wellbeing of the children in her care has always been at the heart of her teaching. “Emotions drive learning, decision making, creativity, relationships and health.”
As well as seeing private clients as a counsellor Lulu works as an education consultant in schools helping to develop the emotional intelligence and literacy of whole school communities. See more here. She also works as a consultant for organisations that wish to put the emotional wellbeing of their staff at the core of their business.
Lulu works as a consultant and advisor to the Happy Confident Company helping them to build their approach to social and emotional learning.
Lulu writes parenting advice pieces for Mumfidential and acts as their Agony Aunt answering emails from parents who want a little gentle advice when they find themselves a bit stuck. Lulu also runs mindfulness workshops for small groups.
