I have worked in the substance misuse, domestic abuse & social care field for nearly twenty years, beginning with my role as a counsellor at the NSPCC. I gathered a wealth of experience in therapeutic direct delivery work and in policy and practice development.
Working independently as a consultant and trainer, I design and deliver tailor - made programmes for a wide range of services working with the hidden harms within multiple problem families, with a focus on early identification and effective partnership working at a local and national level.
I have experience of working in partnership at all levels of business with government and other charities and organisations aimed at improving partnership links and effective joint commissioning.
Most recently, before going independent, taking a lead for Alcohol Concern on service transformation for agencies involved in alcohol, family and domestic abuse work, I championed the development of nationally recognised innovative approaches. My training programmes for multi-disciplinary professionals has been a great success with county council troubled family teams, therapists and social care students.
I have extensive knowledge of local authority settings having held a strategic position at Hertfordshire County Council's Crime and Drugs Unit as the county lead for domestic abuse.
I supervise practitioners in the social care field both individuals and teams working in the community.
