The Therapist Background and Journey

I started working with parents, guardians and caregivers who are in the midst, or have exited the Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) system, advocating for their child, because I noticed the gap between the focus on the child and the real mental health struggles of those advocating for their child in what can be a unrealenting and unforgiven process.

I have personal skin in the game, having traversed the A to Z of the EHCP process. From submitting a section 36(1) of the Children and Families Act 2014 letter  to the Local Authority right through to completing a Section 35 form and representing at the SENDIST Tribunal.

The process has many ups and downs, and I would rate it as one of the most challenging ‘procedural’ experiences one could possibly endure.
