"I am fascinated by how emotion/ relationships, biochemistry and physiology interact with each other. We cannot look at one aspect of the child in isolation. We need to assess and support the whole child within their environment. That is why I have done, and will continue to do, such a breadth of training. And why I work closely with the family and other professionals.
My goal is that each child feels comfortable in their own body, feels happy in their relationships and can fulfil their potential in whatever they choose to do."
