After thirty years working in third sector homelessness organisations including 18 year managing front-line youth homelessness services I am well placed to use my experience in working with people affected by trauma. I am also a counsellor qualified in both Integrative and Solution Focused approaches. These skills and experiences led me to taking the lead in a youth homelessness charity in developing Psychologically Informed Environment Training and Reflective practice over a period of 8 years. I am passionate about helping colleagues to better look after themselves so that they are best placed to support the most vulnerable. Outside of work I am a singer song-writer mainly of satire and comedy songs.
