Parenting | Families | Young people
I am a qualified social worker and a counsellor/therapist. Much of my work is with families and young people and I also train counsellors who want to specialise in this demanding area.
I look to support families in a range of ways such as delivering the Triple P parenting programme and in working with young people and children, including those in care, who can face numerous risks including abuse, drugs, gangs and crime.
For me, satisfaction comes when I see them turning away from negative peer pressure and they develop the resilience and confidence needed to lead successful lives independently. I also offer bereavement counselling and find this a rewarding service to provide. I have a masters degree in social work from London University and a further degree in education.
