I am a highly experienced and creative trainer, speaker and transformational workshop leader. My style is mindful, engaging and authentic and my aim is to motivate and inspire. I specialise in delivering training, talks and workshops on the following:
- Therapeutic Parenting with PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity & empathy)
- Using PACE to Create Foundations for Attachment
- Emotion coaching and Mental Well-Being in Schools
- Attachment and Developmental Trauma
- Emotional Intelligence
- Surviving the Teenage Years
- Basic Counselling Skills
- The Power of Empathy
- Finding My Voice, Reclaiming My Life
I hold a Degree in Psychology, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) Level 1 & 2. I have over 12 years experience in a wide variety of parenting approaches and am particularly passionate about therapeutic parenting for children who have experienced childhood trauma. I have held the post of Lecturer at Leeds City College and am regularly invited as guest speaker at the University of Leeds and the University of Bradford.
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 am a proud member of the Association of Speakers Clubs and was a 2017 Finalist in the ASC National Speaking Competition.
