About Me

I am committed to the ongoing learning journey in the child protection sector

I am a passionate child protection coach, consultant and practitioner. I have been working in this sector for over 20 years. 


My practice passions are restoration/reunification practice,  Structured Decision-Making assessments, solution-focused and safety centred practice, curriculum writing, training and coaching for child protection agencies and NGOs. I have a broad range of courses and coaching programs covering the continuum of child protection practice.

Mental fitness is important in this complex work and more recently I have integrated the practice of positive intelligence into my work in the sector which is a new and exciting evidence base.



I have the knowledge and experience to meet your best hopes and offer a variety of services customized to fit your specific needs. Learn more about the growth I can help you achieve, and contact me today.
