Q&A

Working together with families and schools to help children feel better about their lives.
I love to meet new people and enjoy the challenge of teasing out the concerns.

I have worked in many teams but now that I have more time of my own I am able to work independently.

I have 40 years of experience as a teacher and 17 as a therapist. I have also raised my own family. I understand many if the issues confronting young people and will be happy to help. I have a range of support mechanisms for myself and follow the BAPT code of ethics. I have a current enhanced DBS and public liability insurance. I regularly attend training to ensure I keep abreast of current theory and practice.
