Biography

I have over 30 years’ experience working as an adoption social worker, specialising in post adoption support with adoptive families. I now work privately on an independent basis, providing DDP informed therapeutic support to adoptive parents and other caregivers.

I have used DDP principles in my practice since 2004 and throughout my career have developed DDP skills through case work with adoptive families and training adoptive parents and colleagues.

I was independently commissioned to facilitate the DDP informed ‘Nurturing Attachments’ therapeutic parenting programme; having run three programmes along with a monthly follow up Practice Group to help adoptive parents continue developing skills in PACE parenting. I co facilitate a regular ‘Special Interest Group’ for Social Workers using DDP in their practice.

I specialise in working with adoptive parents and other caregivers, supporting them with the issues that parenting traumatised children raises; enabling them to be therapeutic in their parenting and better able to support any therapy that their children are receiving.

I have a particular interest in working with parents and carers who are struggling to connect with their children due to blocked care; helping them explore the issues that are preventing them from parenting therapeutically.

I am HCPC registered and a member of NAGALRO.
