From a young age I enjoyed spending time with children, often nick-named the ‘Pied Piper’. I have always been passionate about working with children and often spent my free-classes in high school, helping to teach sports to the younger children, as a prefect, after school as a babysitter and a volunteer in the youth club before embarking on college and university.
I qualified as a social worker in July 2011 and commenced my first employment in Children's Services in 2011. Within my years of practice in the social care industry, I have been fortunate enough to work with a range of service users in statutory settings as well as in the voluntary sector, with children and adults. Within my career to date, I have worked first hand with trauma; working with young offenders, those experiencing mental ill health, addictions, young carers and both children and adults who have first hand experience of abuse; including physical, sexual, emotional, domestic violence and neglect. This often led to children suffering from attachment difficulties of different severities.
It has always been my passion to assist in changing the lives of children and young people. With my skills, experience and training, I am able to support children, carers and families in a more dynamic way, using a range of different tools that I have learnt.
I have trained in many different modalities to aid my practice. My qualifications include: Theraplay & Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) Level 2, GOE Energy E.F.T Master Practitioner and GOE Energist Trainer, Sparkle to Success Energy Consultant, N.L.P Practitioner. I also hold other certificates; including a Mindfulness Diploma, Mindfulness with Children, Professional Counselling with Adolescents & Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. Furthermore, I am a Certified WISDOM Coach which enables me to offer one-to-one coaching with children / teenagers, school based workshops and coaching with parents / carers.
Professional Training Course & Workshops
I run professional training courses and workshops, teach groups, see individual clients both in person and on Skype internationally.
As a professional Parent & Child Life Coach I do not diagnose, cure or claim to heal any mental or physical conditions and advise any new client to consult their GP or medical practitioner. My work is primarily to empower you to access your own healer within.
