Welcome

My name is Leeony and like you, I am on a life journey and things haven’t always gone to plan.

Things don’t go according to plan, and a new chapter gets written to our life story.  We don’t always to write it ourselves, but we can to make changes to the story.

Blue Skies Tomorrow  and Blue Skies Craft are sites that supports children and adults dealing with grief, loss and trauma. This can come in many different forms and affect people in many different ways.

A bit about myself:

I have been counselling since 2008 and have delivered the Seasons for Growth program developed by Good Grief to many children in primary schools.   I have also worked as a teacher in a hospital school with children with multiple disabilities and terminal illness.  Currently in 2018 I am working as a school counsellor and provide counselling support for students, staff and families.

Qualifications:

  • Masters of Counselling Practice (Tabor College)
  • Bachelor of Education (Primary) (UniSA)
  • Bachelor of Arts (Information Studies) (UniSA)

Why I do what I do:

Seeing children and their families grow and develop strategies to cope in difficult times while becoming more resilient has been a major highlight for me.

I have helped children and their families in the area of grief and loss.  I developed Blue Skies Craft which provides art and craft activities and provides grief theory to use during play therapy.

I have a Christian worldview and can provide Biblical and prayer counselling at your request.  

The essence of Blue Skies Tomorrow is that whatever the circumstances, there is always hope.

 

Blessings,
