I am a highly experienced and creative trainer, speaker and workshop leader. My style is engaging and authentic and my aim is to motivate and inspire. I special in delivering training, talks and workshops on the following:
- Emotion Coaching
- Peaceful and Empathic Parenting
- Attachment and Developmental Trauma
- PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy)
- Emotional Intelligence
- Parent Support and Work with Parents
- 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 on the Children, Young People and Families Degree programme.
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 and my passionate belief in the power of empathy and emotion coaching to transform the parent/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.
