Practitioner in DDP
BA (Honours) Social Work
As an Independent Social Worker registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, I have over 20 years’ experience in working with Children and Families. This includes Early Years Education, Child Protection and managing a Therapeutic Team in a Local Authority, where DDP was the core therapeutic approach. I have been using DDP principles and the PACE approach since 2011.
In my role as an Independent Practitioner and sole proprietor of a registered therapeutic services business, I work with adoptive, foster and birth families. I also offer consultation and training for adopters, foster carers, and professionals from Education, Health and Social Care in relation to Attachment, Trauma, Child Development and Therapeutic Parenting.
As a Certified Practitioner in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, I receive ongoing supervision from a Clinical Psychologist who is a registered Consultant in DDP.
