I am a skilled social worker with over 10 years’ experience in child protection, and private and public law. The specialist areas I have covered include working with families where there are high levels of conflict, mental health difficulties, domestic abuse, alcohol and drug misuse, and child abuse and neglect. I have worked across different social work teams, including fostering/adoption and young people with complex needs. I am one of the directors of 'Can You Hear Me' - a service that delivers supervised contact and private assessments, accessed by courts, solicitors, local authorities and parents/carers. I am passionate about direct work with children and ensuring their voice is heard.
