One of the key values which guides my work is connection. It is a real honour to have opportunities to work with wonderful colleagues on a range of exciting projects. Please see below for more information
Pupil Views Collaborative Group
The Pupil Views Collaboration Group is a collective of educational psychologists and professionals working in education, who are committed to gaining, listening to, sharing and acting on the views of children and young people.
The project was started in May 2020 to explore children and young people's experiences of Covid-19. Please go to the Pupil Views page to see the wide ranging work we have done and continue to do.

It is a honour to be part of ConnectEd, a team of incredible practitioners using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to support educational settings.
ConnectEd offers a wide range of services to educational settings to support pupil, parent/carer and teaching staff wellbeing.
We offer training and supervision to professionals using, and seeking to use, ACT, DNA-V and/or Prosocial group work with children, families and/or schools.

We imagine a future in which schools enable their communities – children, staff and parents - to explore & connect with personal values & to develop the psychological skills to live their best lives.
Connect PSHE is a values-based wellbeing curriculum for primary school pupils. It was developed by Dr Duncan Gillard and Dr Nic Hooper.
It is a fun, easy to use weekly programme that teaches children key skills to promote emotional wellbeing and resilience.

It has been a real pleasure to work alongside the Square Peg Team and contribute a chapter (co-written with Dr Maddi Popoola) to their fantastic book
"This book brings different perspectives and expertise together in one place, Square Pegs aims to help school leaders and staff support children (and their families) more effectively. The authors cover a wide variety of topics – including school attendance, building relationships, trauma-informed practice, and behaviour management. Featuring contributions from more than 50 individual authors, this is an accessible, dip-in, dip-out book – perfect for busy school leaders."
Our chapter Maslow, Relationships and Square Pegs, explores the importance of belonging, safety, emotional wellbeing and opportunity to school systems.
We continue to work with Square Peg & other colleagues to reduce barriers to attendance and explore innovation in education.
