I have considerable experience in teaching and training systemic theories and skills as I have been teaching since 2008. I am currently a visiting lecturer for the Tavistock, teaching on the Foundation and Intermediate course in Brighton. I am also a lecturer and tutor with Frontline, a social work training organisation, which is training social workers in the whole UK.

Prior to this I was a lecturer and tutor at the Institute of Family Therapy, London, for four years teaching for the Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice, between 2008 and 2013. I also taught the Foundation Course for a social care agency based in London through the Tavistock in 2014.

I have delivered several systemic workshops in Jersey for the local Association of Family Therapy on systemic theories and skills between 2015-2018 which helped to create interest in systemic practice and led to establishing the foundation Course now offered by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust. I have developed a tailor-made training programme in systemic practice for children’s homes in East Sussex and fostering agencies.

I am passionate about systemic ideas and creativity and I love writing. Over the years I have published several papers on the national Family Therapy magazine, Context,  in Human Systems and Murmurations, as follows:
