I offer a comprehensive range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) trainings designed to equip staff, teaching assistants, and management teams with the skills and knowledge to navigate challenging situations.

I specialise in delivering trauma training for schools that address sensitive topics such as trauma, abuse, and grief.  These interactive workshops equip participants with the knowledge and practical tools to confidently:

  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of trauma, abuse, and grief
  • Employ effective communication strategies to support individuals in distress
  • Establish clear boundaries and provide appropriate referrals when needed

Whether you require a dedicated training day or a more focused twilight session, I can tailor the content and duration to meet your team's specific needs.  My training approach is flexible, allowing me to come to your location and deliver workshops based on your unique requirements.




More than a simple information overload, my therapy workshop training days are experiential, deeply touching and impactful - They are designed to leave an impression and affect change from the inside out. After all, knowing the right thing to do does not mean we have the capacity to do it.

The result is a definitive change that alters the way you conduct yourself around yourself, your team or the children under your care.

I adopt an inside-out method, whereby I encourage participants to get in touch with their own experience, and through this tap into the emotional side of the brain that has greater retention and effectiveness.

At the same time, I use my skills as a therapist to gauge my audience and adapt accordingly, ensuring that the training is not robotic and dry but instead imaginative, creative and inspiring.

Leading an organisation, especially a school, is an immense responsibility. You wear many hats: strategist, motivator, problem solver, and champion for the well-being of your staff, students, and the entire community. But even the most experienced leaders face moments where a fresh perspective or specialised knowledge can be invaluable. Please contact me with your issue and let's see what we can do.
