I am a member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists and acclaimed author of several books, including ‘Nurturing Natures’ which focuses on Attachment and Children’s Emotional, Sociocultural and Brain Development. In my professional life, I have worked at the Tavistock Clinic in London for over 20 years, an internationally renowned NHS Foundation Trust which provides clinical services and trains therapists and other professionals. I teach on the child psychotherapy and other psychological therapy courses at the Tavistock, and supervises therapists there. I also lead on training in child development, neuroscience and attachment theory, and have a particular interest in linking cutting-edge developmental findings with therapeutic practice. My clinical work in the NHS is primarily with issues of trauma and the effect of maltreatment on children as well as on the families and other adults in the lives of such children.
