I qualified in 1988, and have more than 30 years experience of social work, primarily as a practitioner and manager in Children's Services. I am now an Independent Trainer and Mindfulness Teacher working to support staff resilience and wellbeing in the public and third sector. My work focuses on the team and individual spheres of resilience and includes training and workshops in mindfulness for social work, wider resilience work and capacity building for first line managers. In 2020 I re-designed all of my work from ground up and now deliver blended learning using a combination of live online lessons and flexible access video and multimedia lessons from my dedicated course website.

I work with: Coaching/ mentoring of social workers, Local authority departments, Training and tutoring, Universities / learning & training bodies, Voluntary sector
