About Us


With over 20 years experience working with adults, young people and children as a professional psychologist in local authorities, in recent years her  main focus has been on  developing resilience in people of all ages. 

'Resilience is a quality we all have, and can also all grow in, whatever our age or circumstances. For me, it has been key to maintaining my wellbeing through all life's challenges, from the smallest to the largest.'


After 15 years experience of working with children, troubled teenagers and adults with mental health issues, followed by 10 years as an educational psychologist in a local authority, she is now focusing on resilience as she believes this is key to a happy and fulfilled life, especially after having experienced first hand the effects of a resilient mind on the way she has coped with personal challenges.

  • Excellent training that makes me feel positive about dealing with all situations
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the day, good to have a clear explanation of resilience and the rationale behind the programme
  • Loved the style of the training, relating it back to things we could relate to, thank you
  • A very positive and reflective session, enabling us to look at how to develop ourselves as well as our learners.
  • Really good balance of presentation, background information and practical activities. Looking forward to using the resources and trying the techniques!
  • Many of the messages you gave, they are worldly wisdoms from your grandma perhaps or aphorisms from books… They are true and helped humans through time. They are now all put together by teachers! And presented by two gifted and enthusiastic presenters who gave us the psychological and practical insights we needed. Thank you!
