I'm Lou - I'm the Founder of The Sunflower Network as well as being a creative arts based counsellor for children & young people. The creative arts and child mental health & wellbeing are my two passions - having worked in broadcast television as a Producer for over twenty five years and now as the creative director & MD of The Sunflower Network.
My work at the moment focuses on developing and promoting the services that The Sunflower Network offers, which are wide ranging and of the highest value for anyone working with children, young people and families.
The Sunflower Hub is my passion project to help connect up multi-disciplinary professionals, practitioners, organisations, services, charities, support groups and others who work with and/or support children, young people and families across the UK & Ireland.
It can also be used as a traditional directory by the public to help source the support they need.
It is a bespoke resource and can change and adapt to respond to need, so you are always welcome to get in touch with feedback or further ideas of how we might be able to use it to offer support where it is most needed.
Sunflower also offers a wide range of CPD and training options - we have a programme of events for individuals to attend, as well as a vast range of over 60 bespoke trainings / talks & workshops available to be booked by organisations, schools, charities, local authorities and other service providers.
We also offer independent group reflective practice as well as specialised supervision & consultancy.
My personal talents and skills lie in developing creative ideas and projects - ranging from supporting individuals to Set Up in Private Practice for working with children & young people, to helping consult & format ideas for workshops & trainings, to offering guidance on workshop and presentation delivery and media appearances. I can also be consulted on ideas around developing short films and offer a 'script' editing service for presentations / workshop advertising and other written media.
I have also run my own successful private practice for over seven years in South West London.
Please note: my private practice is currently closed to new clients.
