Donna is a Sessional Specialist Attachment Practitioner at The Family Place.

She qualified as a social worker in 2000 and has worked for Local Authorities, charities and the NHS in a variety of teams including looked after children, early help, specialist CAMHS and adoption.  

Through her work she strives to work positively with families using therapeutic approaches which enhance children’s attachments with their primary caregivers and to bring moments of connection and joy into their relationships.  She has a wealth of experience in supporting families impacted by developmental trauma and attachment difficulties. 

Donna has completed both DDP and Theraplay Level 1 and hopes to work towards accreditation in both, having seen the positive impact these models can bring to families.  She is also qualified as a Systemic Practitioner having undertaken training in Systemic theory and practice to intermediate level.

Donna is excited to be undertaking work with The Family Place and to helping families build a brighter future together.
