Sally is grateful to be supporting parents during their adjustment to parenthood and recognises challenges that commonly occur. Sally’s strong interest in working with parents experiencing bonding and attachment difficulties developed during her five years working for a large not for profit organisation. Sally provided consultation and training to many adoptive and foster parents; supporting them to develop secure attachments with their non-biological children. Sally is a firm believer in early intervention for the parent-child relationship in order to provide a good foundation for mental health across the lifespan.

Her treatment modalities are tailored to each individual and may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal therapy and attachment focused interventions including Circle of Security. Sally’s specialist training in parenting groups and child and adolescent mental health allows her to continue to support families with positive parenting practices as their children grow and develop through the years.
