Training & Speaking


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.
