Areas of special interest

I have eleven years’ experience working with children and adolescents. I spent seven years working within a therapeutic high support residential home for children in care. I have spent the last four years working as part of a multi-disciplinary team who provides direct therapeutic support to Foster Family and their Foster Children. Through the course of my career to date, I have supported young people with a wide range of issues including, grief and loss, separation, trauma, neglect, abuse, attachment difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety, and behavioural issues. I have experience of working with Children/Adolescents with attachment difficulties, FASD, Autism, Selective Mutism and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.  I believe that building therapeutic relationships with families and their children is key to enable therapeutic change.
