Helen Kennedy – Development Officer

Helen has recently joined the Youth Focus North East team and is genuinely excited to be working for such an innovative and inspiring company.
Her background was in retail management and training until she had her first child five years ago. This gave her the opportunity to retrain in an area she was very passionate about and she successfully gained a Foundation degree in Counselling.
For the last two years she has been working as a school counsellor and private therapist and trainer. The difficulties young people face today motivates Helen to continue to help in any capacity she can.
She is now working under Laura Bush on projects relating to youth employment and mental health and well-being across the Tees Valley area.
In her spare time she is a busy Mum to two crazy and beautiful children but given the opportunity loves a good spa break, massage, swimming and baking. Anything really for a chance to relax and unwind.
