Yvonne is our Head of Consultancy and has been working with children who exhibit social, emotional and behavioural needs for nearly 30 years, within both primary and secondary special school settings. She was previously the co-ordinator for social emotional, mental health and wellbeing (SEMH) for the targeted Education Support services working with and supporting mainstream and special schools in Wigan Local Authority. Yvonne has been involved with developing and supporting nurture groups for many years, a passion that was inspired by Marion Bennathan’s keynote at a conference held 14 years ago. A few years ago Yvonne completed her MA focusing on the use of the six principles of nurture.
In her spare time Yvonne is an avid fell walker and climber and spends a lot of her spare time in the Lake District
