Ellis Hayward



ellisI retired from the I.T industry after more than 30 years as a programmer, analyst and consultant. I have an active interest in different forms of psychology and gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Emotional Education at Derby University when I was 60 years old. I did three years counselling courses at Buxton campus but discontinued the course due to other commitments,
I have been trained as a mentor and a reading coach working with excluded children and young adults who have been part of the justice system.

I am also a trained appropriate adult and worked in the Derby police station for a short while until I became a trustee and volunteer at the Grapevine Well-being Centre and Director at Bright Opportunities.
