I am a qualified Children’s Centre Manager and have over 13 years experience of working with children and their families in many capacities. I have a specialism of working with children aged 0-5 years especially with babies. I have a BA in Early Years with Early Years Professional Status.
I have participated in a lot of projects over the years and especially within Leeds as my role as a Children’s Centre Manager. Recently I was involved in the pilot project of Preparation for Birth and Beyond an 8 week ante-natal programme which is now delivered across all children’s centres in Leeds for first time parents. The focus of the course is to prepare families for the birth of their child, not just focusing typically on the birth aspect but the whole experience. This involved developing activities in relation to the developing foetus, safety, relationships and people who can support us in the wider community. This has led to the development of training of Babies, brains and bonding which is a Leeds city wide training which I have been a part of.
In 2009 I qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) as part of my role in the Children’s Centre where I worked. I had supported many sessions and became inspired to become and CIMI to allow me to deliver the gift of baby massage and its many benefits to children and their families. I am a member of International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) and recently awarded the role in the IAIM as Assistant Regional Representative for the Yorkshire and Humber Region. This is a new and exciting experience which will allow me to not only share the gift of baby massage but to co-orindate and support student CIMI’s past and present.
I am supporting the pledge with Leeds City Council as a local business to ensure Leeds (our city) is a Child Friendly city.
I deliver weekly classes in Leeds, Wakefield and the Pontefract area. Courses are also available on request for group or one to one home visits.
I offer one to one home visits for one off support or private course booking.
