I am a freelance Education Consultant working mainly with schools and supporting the development of children of all ages. I train teachers, run workshops for parents and develop projects and programmes looking at all those areas of development that aren’t covered by the curriculum such as negotiation skills, resilience, PSHE, SRE, self worth and relationships in all their ups and downs. I’m a co- author of two books with my writing partner, Alison Baverstock. ‘Whatever – a down to earth guide to parenting teenagers’ and ‘It’s Not Fair – parenting the bright and challenging child” both published by Piatkus. We’re currently writing our third book which is all about parenting 16 – 22 year olds through the leaving home and coming back again phases!
