The best place to start this page is with my overarching mission: to have happier children who shine with their own beautiful strengths, with families and educators who know how to best support them, and an inclusive education system and society that values, understands and welcomes difference.


This is why I am so passionate about what I do. It is such a privilege to encourage a child who is floundering to flourish, and to enable the people and systems around them to meet their needs. Enabling and observing the transformations that take place is a genuine joy.


I’m an Education Expert who has worked within education settings for almost 30 years, starting out as a primary school teacher and then returning to the University of Cambridge to study for a masters degree and doctorate in Education.


I have worked across age groups and educational sectors in a range of leadership capacities working with children and their families and also advising on how to develop inclusive practice. Alongside, I have continued to write, cascading knowledge that enables parents and society, to better understand and meet children’s needs.


Specialising in thinking and learning differences such as Social Communication Difficulties, Autism (especially in girls), Dyslexia and attentional issues, I work worldwide to support parents and their children who are struggling and often in crisis.


My work is bespoke, holistic, and hands-on. There is no textbook approach because each child and their family is completely unique. They have layers and complexities, texture and distinctive circumstances. My role is to understand and unravel that and enable those caring for, and working with the child, to have a full understanding of their needs to create a real solution that is rooted and gets results.


What sets me apart is not only my expertise and experience or my extensive and specialist network, but the level of support that I provide. It is important to build real relationships with my families, offering specialist knowledge and considered action but also immense compassion and care.


My work is entirely tailored to what you need and is truly transformative in every aspect. Skilful and insightful, it equips parents and educators, and empowers children, restoring how they feel about themselves and creating authentic change, for today but as importantly, for tomorrow.
