I am a Social Worker with 16 yrs experience. I support parents; to meet the therapeutic, developmental and behavioural needs of their children. I support professionals to think systematically about how best to meet the needs of children, to increase their responsibilities to the child/family, enabling a strength focused approach that moves away from the narrative that the child needs fixing or is the presenting problem. I am particularly interested the DDP Model ( Dyadic Developmental Practice, Dyadic Developmental Parenting and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy). Central to this model is a PACE approach which I use to inform my practice with the child, parent and systems around them.

I work with: Coaching/ mentoring of parents (families), Coaching/ mentoring of social workers, Direct work with families and carers, Direct work with service users, Placements, Private/ independent sector, Therapeutic work
