What is 'professional consulting'?
I am very passionate about my work and deeply curious about the human experience. Mental and emotional health, child development, our whole spectrum of feelings and the therapeutic application of the arts all fascinate me. One of my wishes is to keep sharing and spreading the knowledge and understanding I have accumulated so far throughout my career. I have found that the need and desire to learn more about the 'human experience' reaches individuals and professionals beyond those who regularly engage with children directly. Whether to deepen your creative project, expand your leadership qualities, or improve your skills in personal relations, I may be able to help. So in very simple terms, the consulting that I offer is really about me sharing what I know with you, in any way that may support you on your professional journey.
Who is it for?
The consulting that I offer is for professionals who are looking to deepen or expand their understanding of child development or psychotherapy, in order to support their professional growth or a particular project. For example, in the past I have provided this service to film producers, play writers, healthcare workers and newly developing art and recreation centres for children.
What will the sessions look like?
We will first meet for an initial session to explore whether my professional consulting services are appropriate and helpful to support your work. The way that we then proceed will depend on the project and means of communication. Consulting sessions are tailored to your particular needs and can be offered in person, via Skype, phone or email. Although I will always suggest in-person meetings, alternative options mean that geographical location is of no limit and I am able to work with you internationally.
What are examples of areas of consulting?
Below are just a few examples of ways that I can support your professional or creative journey:
Building a training, support or educational curriculum for adults or children
Developing a script or character for a film/play, informed by theories in human development and the latest findings in neuroscience
Helping paediatric healthcare workers improve and expand their skills to offer necessary emotional support to their patients, particularly before, during and after a medical procedure (vaccinations, surgical operations, etc)
Facilitating a team building and group strengthening programme for your employees
Developing a reflective approach to your practice or professional role
