Building Safer Relationships 

Consultancy


I have over 30 years experience of developing and delivering support services for people experiencing significant relationship difficulties and relationship breakdown.


I have a particular interest in developing effective services for people involved in domestic abuse and relationship trauma.


Experience:


  • Specialist Adviser and Advocate for women survivors of domestic abuse for over 10 years.
  • Developed and managed an innovative domestic abuse intervention service providing therapeutic support to both male and female domestic abuse perpetrators and male and female survivors.


  • Chair a multi-agency Domestic and Sexual Violence Forum
  • Continously update and develop my knowledge and expertise in this area of work.


I can provide mentoring and consultancy services for organisations wanting to develop pyschologically informed domestic abuse policies.


I can support you through design and delivery of a relationhip therapy service that can risk assess for safety and deliver helpful intervention.



Staff support:


I can also provide emotional and practical support, and mentoring for front line managers and staff teams who are delivering domestic abuse support and intervention services.





 

Training 



I can provide bespoke training packages for organisations  that want to increase their awareness, skills and  knowledge about working with domestic violence and abuse (DVA).


I can design and deliver half day or full day training modules for your staff team, ranging from a basic level of  DVA awareness raising,  through to a more advanced, trauma informed understanding of the pyschological aspects of domestic violence and abuse.


As an example, I can explain the latest thinking on attachment theory, trauma and abuse, and how these theories can inform models of DVA intervention.


I will work with you to develop  the most appropriate level of training for  your organisation's needs. 












If  you are interested in my consultancy, mentoring or training services, please contact me to discuss your requirements.


During the Covid -19 pandemic all support services and training became available on Zoom. This will continue until all restrictions are lifted, and may still be available by arrangement. 


I will work with you to decide how best to meet your organisation's development needs,  as well as discuss the costs involved.
