 I’m a qualified teacher with over 16 years' experience of working with children on the autism spectrum. I’ve worked with children of all abilities from non-verbal children with additional learning difficulties to very verbal and able children with Asperger’s Syndrome and Pathological Demand Avoidance. I  worked for over ten years at a specialist school for children with autism in Nottingham both as a class teacher and as a music specialist using music as a framework for supporting children’s communication.

I am an integrative arts child counsellor trained at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education and a member of BACP.

 I am an EAQ® (Equine Assisted Qualifications) qualified facilitator.

I have also completed the first training course in the Horse Boy Method™ offered in the UK with Rupert Isaacson (author of The Horse Boy), and am a Certified Professional in the Horse Boy Method.
