Practitioner in DDP, Consultant in DDP, Trainer in DDP
I live in Nottingham in the UK and work in independent practice. I am a DDP practitioner & consultant & I am training as a DDP trainer.
For the past 15 years I have practiced as a Family & Systemic Psychotherapist, previously working in CAMHS in Birmingham & Derbyshire and in the private sector with Chrysalis Associates in Sheffield, mostly with Children in Care and adoptive families.
I am interested in integrating EMDR, Theraplay-informed play and sensory integration techniques into my DDP practice as an attachment focused Family Therapist. I am trained in EMDR with Adults and Children & Adolescents. I am interested also in the integration of Mindfulness & DDP. I have trained to deliver Mindful Parenting & run groups for adoptive parents. Prior to becoming a Family Therapist, I worked for 10 years in field social work, as a practitioner and team manager, overseeing child protection, care and adoption cases.
