Janet combines working as a therapist with a small number of individual clients, often via zoom, with her Expert Witness work and mentoring parents and professionals via online programmes in their own personal development journey. Her work has also led her to create SEN Conferences and an online community pulling parents, experts and various members of the system together to learn how to address the needs of their children, as well as grow in their understanding of the system. Janet believes that everyone has the right to a voice and for that voice to be heard. Through her own experience and expertise she can show you how to achieve that for yourself, your family or those you work with. Her vision for the future is a world that is fairer, fully integrating and including all in society.
