I am an independent DDP Practitioner, Systemic Practitioner and Social Worker. I am currently training to become a DDP Consultant and an EFT Practitioner. I offer DDP parent and family work, Therapeutic Life Story Work, The Nurturing Attachments Group and professional training. I am able to work creatively and flexibly using the various approaches I am trained in. I offer online sessions.

I have worked in education, residential and youth work settings prior to starting work in Children’s Social Care in 2010. My first degree was in contemporary fine art, an interest which continues to inform my therapeutic practice.

While working for Hackney Social Care, I qualified as a Systemic Practitioner at The Institute of Family Therapy in 2014. I completed a Social Work MA at Middlesex University in 2016 and registered as a social worker. During my time in Hackney, I worked in the Assessment, Children in Need/CP, Leaving Care, Adoption and Post Permanency services.

I became an accredited DDP Practitioner in 2019, supervised by Kim Golding, while working for Adoptionplus’ PACE Place, a specialist DDP based service.

I am a member of the DDPI Racial Equity Social Justice and Global Development Committees.
