I work across the South West as an ISW and trainer. My work includes parenting assessments, risk assessments in cases involving family violence, private law work, contact assessments, kinship care assessments, direct work with children, life story work, mentoring and chairing disruption meetings and child appreciation days.
I have 34 years experience in children and families social work, having practiced as a local authority social worker, IRO, independent chair and children's guardian. I have been an independent social worker since 2004. I have published in the field and I also work for a national organisation developing and delivering training and resources.
