Hi, I'm Rachel. I run the Montessori Commons website.
I am an Association Montessori International (AMI) classroom guide I have worked with children aged 2.5-12 years and their families. I also hold an MSc in Education for Sustainability. I am a registered teacher with The General Teaching Council in the UK and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Inclusive Education. Additionally, I hold an MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a provisional member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC). I'm a Family Therapist specialising in co-regulation and I'm especially keen to work with neurologically diverse people, BIPOC folk and non-binary people, I recognise that our challenges can be both individual and systemic.
Montessori Commons is a space to learn about the Montessori method with its Albums and through this site, and my private practice I'm offering therapy and counselling informed by my specific background in teaching and Montessori education. I'm keen to work with Parents & Homeschoolers, Families and Institutions to provide support mechanisms to transform trauma and education.
