I am a highly experienced and creative trainer, speaker and workshop leader.
My style is relational, engaging and authentic and my aim is to motivate and inspire. I specialise in delivering training, talks and workshops on the following:
- Using a PACE approach to create foundations for attachments
- Emotion Coaching and Mental Well-Being in School
- Attachment and Developmental Trauma
- Peaceful and Empathic Parenting
- Emotional Intelligence
- Surviving the Teenage Years
- Basic Counselling Skills
I hold a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology, DDP Level 2 (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy), am certified and experienced in a wide variety of parenting approaches and the 'Foundations for Attachment Programme' in supporting children with developmental trauma. I have held the post of lecturer at Leeds City College and Guest Speaker at the University of Bradford and the University of Leeds.
I help both parents and professionals to understand what drives behaviour and use emotion coaching to provide empathic behaviour support. My work has been guided by my own personal journey as a mother, my training in psychology, psychotherapy and my passionate belief in the power of empathy and connection to transform the parent/child and adult/child relationship.
I regularly speak about the power of empathy to create connected relationships and was a 2017 Finalist in the Association of Speakers Clubs National Speaking Competition.
