Having worked as a local authority Social Worker for 15 years, I felt that I had gained the experience and confidence to practice as an Independent Social Worker and set up Meridian Social Work in April 2018.
I have retained the passion that I came into the profession with and have further developed specialisms in the areas of Mental Health and Mental Capacity.
My first degree was in Psychology but I was drawn to Social Perspectives and to Social Work as a Values based Profession. I achieved my Masters degree in Social Work in 2002 with distinction and continue to apply the same high standards to my practice.
I find my chosen field stimulating and pride myself on my legal literacy. Working within the area of social justice is a privilege and I strive to work in partnership. I have great belief in the potential each individual has, taking a strengths based approach as my starting point.
I take my continuing professional development seriously. I have taken opportunities through my career to develop my knowledge and skills and continue to meet the requirements of my professional registration with the Health and Social Care Council (HCPC). I have a current DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) Check and am fully insured.
Thank you for visiting my website, please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements for my professional social work service. I am based in the South-East Region.
