I have been a qualified social worker since 1999. I have worked in child protection services and Fostering. I have been specialising in Fostering and attachment work over the last 10years. I enjoy social work immensely and in particular my new role with NFA as Practice Manager. I have a keen interest in therapeutic parenting and I have been researching and training in attachment focused parenting for the last 10years. This work has helped me support and provide practical advice to a number of fostering families and to promote positive outcomes for children and young people. Working to support and empower people is very rewarding.
