Making it easier to care, I aim to reduce the stress and workload of all who safeguard children. I share the responsibility of keeping children safe. I provide analytical family assessments that place the welfare of children at the centre and make clear recommendations for their future. I have over 25 years direct work with children and families, and expertise in both court and local authority directed assessments. I undertake child and family assessments where there are concerns of high risk, multiple issues and complex family relationships. I have a particular interest in perinatal and infant mental health.
