I am experienced in developing and delivering teaching, training and custom-based professional development workshops to students, trainees and qualified professionals. Below are some of my past and future trainings, conference presentations and teaching:

Together with Dr Anna Churcher Clarke we have founded the Identity Development Consultation & Training (ID-CAT) initiative. We offer case consultation and training programs on adolescent development, family life-cycle transitions, sexual and gender identity, eating disorders and trauma to services and clinicians in different European countries. We have so far delivered trainings and interventions in London, Aberdeen, Brighton, Athens and Rome and have consulted with different teams on service development and implementation projects.

For enquiries related to ID-CAT please contact us by email.
