My background is primarily working with challenging and vulnerable children and young people. This includes working with young offenders with a variety of conditions within a custodial setting, as well as in a children’s home and a specialist ASD school. I also have experience of working with adults in a Mental Health hospital.
I began my pathway into Social Work in 2013 and following qualification I worked as a Social Worker in a secure setting.
In 2016, I made the choice to redirect my career pathway into the world of disabilities. This was due to my own personal experience of my daughter being born with a brain injury.
I moved from the custodial facility, to the Local Authority Children and Families’ Social Services department, within the Sensory Team. My involvement here included working with deaf, blind and deafblind children, who often had other additional and complex needs including neurological conditions.
With this now being a strong passion in my life, and to further progress my career and knowledge base, I moved to Head First where I have been able to help other families in similar situations to myself.
I am passionate about supporting individuals to achieve their maximum potential and make a difference in theirs and their family’s lives.
I enjoy developing rapport and strong working relationships with all concerned and providing ongoing support to enable my clients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
