Hi, I’m Debbie, a parent with two grown-up boys and four grandchildren
I qualified as a nursery nurse 1986. I then worked as a residential social worker in children’s homes and homes for adults and children with Learning Difficulties
I trained as a social worker and qualified 1997 with Diploma in Social Work and Degree in Social Science from Middlesex University
Since qualifying, I have worked in youth offending services, in various roles up to manager of prevention services and also working in Learning and Development and Practice Education supporting social workers – in particular, those who are newly qualified social workers and those new to management. I completed my Masters in Social Work -Practice Education at Goldsmiths University.
Parallel to working within social work I have developed an interest in alternative and holistic coaching and healing and have undertaking numerous courses to build up a private practice combining all my experience.
Pivotal to all this was my own diagnosis of dyslexia in 2011, which was a shock and an eye opener to me having already gaining my degree in 1997 and going through secondary and further education without this being picked up. After my diagnosis, I started to make sense of how I function and why how my daily routines were completed in a particular way, which, some people may say is unorganised others say fearsomely or maybe even intuitively.
