Hi there! My name is Mollie. I, alongside my mum Kerry, created the Youth Intervention Centre in Spring 2018. Our aim is to provide a safe place where young people who may be struggling can be supported and understood. My job is to provide the counselling and therapeutic intervention services we offer.

Previous to setting up YIC I've had experience of working at a local alternative provision school in Dartington. While there I created and delivered specialist therapeutic Interventions to students aged 5 – 16 to help meet their needs and to allow them to feel listened to and understood. Prior to that I worked as the Autism Specialist Teaching Assistant at a large mainstream school in Newton Abbot. I also have a experience of working with those aged 16 and above, as I spent a large portion of my placement working at City College Plymouth delivering time-limited counselling to their students.

When I’m not working one of my favourite things to do is to go hiking and take photos of Dartmoor, or to draw & paint :)

Hi, I've been working in banking and then administration most of my working life, starting at Lloyds Bank and then CAMHS, RNIB and lastly managing the data and exams for a local alternative provider.  We've been running YIC now for a year and I love seeing the difference that we make to the young people who use our service.

In this time I've also started up Redlake Ceramics where I take my love of clay and use it to make therapeutic items such as thumb stones, labyrinths and emotion stones.  For me, clay is a therapy all of its own and I love being able to give back by making therapeutic items for others to enjoy.

I've also started my own journey towards counselling qualifications as I can see the difference Mollie makes and the love and enjoyment she also takes away from it.

When I'm not working I love catching up with friends, gardening and walking, particularly on Dartmoor.
