Service Manager Main House
I joined Moore House in November 2016. I very much enjoyed my role as Assistant Service Manager in Main House before I took up the position of Service Manager in August 2018. I have worked in the residential child care sector for eight years, in several different organisations and settings. I am particularly drawn to Moore House Care and Education because of our focus on the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapeutic approach and the commitment to genuine therapeutic change in the lives of previously disadvantaged young people.
I am passionate about genuine therapeutic intervention to ensure that all young people have access to opportunities to maximise their life chances and happiness. I have particularly enjoyed working with fathers and believe this is an important and neglected area of work.
I have a Certificate in Counselling Children and Young People, an MSc Psychology and Philosophy and I qualified with a Social Work Masters in October 2015. I am also a qualified climbing instructor and very much enjoy both rock and ice climbing. I also practice Ashtanga yoga in my free time.
