Throughout my working life I have worked in an array of environments such as a Nursery School where I worked as a qualified Nursery Nurse. I then continued with my professional development and studied Counselling skills for 2 years .I have also gained the national qualification and worked as a Learning Mentor for 2 years. My interest in family life continued and I went on to work in a Family Centre supporting families that were facing crisis. Today I work as a Family Support Worker for Hitchin Partnership, during this time I have attended numerous seminars as well as qualifying with a Diploma in working with families in schools.
