Further information

I have worked as a therapist with children and families for 30 years. Prior to this I was a teacher, working in a Secondary school and also a large Children’s Home, so have an understanding of school systems and the need for trauma informed work. Currently, I have a Private Practice and offer supervision to therapists and schools.

I have written a book for KS2 children called Little-mouse Finds a safe Place (2016, Worth Publishing Ltd) about domestic abuse and developed an 8 week group work programme for schools, for children who have experienced DA. I also offer training and workshops around this subject.

I have contributed two chapters and co-edited Dramatherapy for Children, Young People and Schools, (eds Leigh, Gersch, Dix & Haythorne 2021 Routledge) and contributed a chapter in Dramatherapy and Autism ( eds Haythorne & Seymour 2017 Routledge) I am currently Deputy Editor of Dramatherapy: Journal of the British Association of Dramatherapists.
