Wendy Lejeune BA (Hons), MSc, PgDip Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, PgCLTHE, FHEA, MBACP
I am a professionally trained integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and I teach on the counselling and education modules of the Course. My main professional interests are: mental health and wellbeing; trauma; domestic and sexual abuse and attachment.
I began my career as a civil servant, working across several government departments, including the Department of Education, in London, Newcastle and Sheffield. I left to retrain as a counsellor and psychotherapist and have practised in a variety of therapeutic settings including: NHS; domestic and sexual abuse agencies; schools and private practice.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I am informed by Person Centred, Attachment Theory and CBT modalities to inform my practice. I bring my practical counselling experience to inform and enrich my teaching of the subject.
My main research interests are: critical approaches to counselling and psychotherapy; connections between attachment, change and loss in education, and developing ideas around the concept and purpose of a university in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
I am an Academic Adviser and dissertation supervisor.
I have held a variety of roles, including: Head of Year (L5) for the Course, and External Examiner for the University of Worcester.
I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and on their Register which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
