“I qualified as a social worker in 1997 after a career in the private sector. I worked within a children’s assessment team and then as a senior practitioner within child protection for Essex County Council. In 2000 I became a Child Protection Officer with the NSPCC and later acted as manager of a specialist unit working with children and families.
I hold an MA in Applied Systemic Theory from the Tavistock Centre, a BA in Professional Social Work Practice, a PQ Award in Childcare and an Advanced Award in Social Work.
In 2002 I became Manager of therapeutic services at Kites Children’s Services and in 2008 I became a Director and co-owner of the organisation.
In 2004 I jointly founded WillisPalmer an independent organisation which provides an a national network of independent social workers, consultant psychologists and qualified therapists.
In 2009 Roz and myself started Mosaic Foster Care to complement Kites fostering service by offering long term foster placements utilising the same tried and tested integrated treatment methodology for a wider client group.”
