I have over 20 years experience in working with individuals and families with complex needs. Orignally a parenting trainer, I began working with more complex issues, such as Anger Management programmes, Stress & Anxiety and Mindfulness. I have been a Service Manager for over 12 years providing therapeutic interventions around mental health and have provided support for children and families exposed to domestic abuse and trauma.
I have been involved in providing group work and individual work with those with a variety of complex issues, including stress and mindfulness workshops. I am also a trainer for organisations wanting to develop better ways of engaging with people and am an accredited parenting trainer and mindfulness teacher. My work has been recognsied by Government funded bodies as national best practice and I have various awards for my innovative work with individuals and families.
I enjoy working with people also on an individual basis and work on the basis that you have choices and the power to find meaning in life, which can lead to positive change.
