Latest News & Updates

10 September, 2015

Well, summer is nearly drawing to a close ... but I'm hoping that there is still a little bit of warmth left in the year before the autumn comes a calling. This e-newsletter shares some of the training opportunities and conferences that I'm taking part in in the Autumn/Winter. I'll also share with you a few events that have caught my eye and I hope you'll find useful.

I'd also like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored me for my 6 months of no alcohol to raise money for HVN. I raised £1,126 which is far more than I ever imagined! Definitely worth going without alcohol for the first half of this year.

As always, if you want to keep in touch - check out

Open Dialogue

I'm happy to be joining with Open Dialogue UK's Nick Putman to work with families using many of the principles and philosophies of the Open Dialogue approach. If you want to find out more about this, please see:  

Northamptonshire Vulnerable Victims Project

This year I've been working with Northamptonshire Voice and Victim Support to help them reach out to people with mental health problems and/or learning disabilities who may struggle to seek support after a crime. We have created 4 animations based on consultation with survivors, as well as a series of postcards and booklets.

Keep an eye on my website for more information on what I've been up to in recent months.
