Possible career change advise

    I'm 26 yrs old and have been working full time as a primary teacher for almost 3 years. I have recently come back from travelling for 6 months and am considering a change in career.

    I have always had very positive feedback on my teaching and worked in a fantastic school before going travelling. Although I love working with children I really don't enjoy all the 'extras' that teaching requires. My ideal job would be working within or between a school setting and an office with individual children or small groups. I am interested in jobs involving therapy/counselling (although I have no experience in this) or something to do with SEND or children with social/behavioural needs. My idea job would be Art Therapy but I am aware there is a lack on jobs within this country and many people have to do voluntary or locum work.

    As you can see I'm really not sure what I want to do, but would really appreciate any ideas or advice on how to move into these above areas or what job roles they may include.

    Thank you!!

    I am also willing to go back into higher education to achieve any of this.
