Training

For the past 15 years I have been training both social work, education and child mental health professionals, foster carers, adopters and special guardians in a variety of child mental health subjects.

I have delivered training to:

  • Hertfordshire’s social work academy
  • The psychology doctorate at The University of Hertfordshire
  • GAPS (Group for the Advancement of Psychotherapy and Psychodynamics in Social Work)
  • Developing Together
  • The Stephanou Foundation
  • London Boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Islington, Camden, Westminster and Enfield. (Schools, Early Help Teams, Charities, Youth Offending Teams, Social Care, CAMHS)
  • Humber Teaching NHS Trust, Inspire Inpatient adolescent service.
  • Hertfordshire ARC Services

I have also led a workshop at the System Centred Training International Conference in Philadelphia 2019.

As an experienced social worker and child mental health practitioner I am enthusiastic about designing bespoke training as well as delivering training packages that I have already created.
