An unhealthy mind, even in a healthy body, will ultimately destroy health
I have worked as an educational psychologist in Manchester and Oldham. I am a former secondary teacher of modern languages, special needs, head of year and European tour guide. I am a specialist practitioner for post 16 educational psychology. I am part of the Central Manchester CAMHS Social Communication Assessment and Intervention Team (SCAIT) and I particularly enjoy running post-diagnosis workshops and drop-in advice sessions for the parents of children with autism. I am often in awe of the challenges parents face and the ingenuity and resilience they display. I also enjoy providing consultation and training to teachers about the needs of children with autism. I run courses for educational professionals, have designed and delivered training for the police and conferences for young people. She also contribute to Educational Psychology and PGCE training courses. Abigail have also worked with fostering and adoption teams. I have parented three teenagers. I am a school governor and in her free time, enjoys tennis, running and windsurfing.
