Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
With a background as a primary school teacher, Computing curriculum consultant and online safety advisor (CEOP Ambassador), Sarah has worked in schools throughout London and delivered sessions to children of all ages, parents, staff and governors in a diverse range of educational settings.
After two years volunteering on a leading mental health charity’s Parent and Carers’ helpline, Sarah has substantial understanding, not only of the education system, but also of the challenges faced by teachers, students and parents, life in the digital world, mental health difficulties and strategies that support young people with their emotional wellbeing.
As part of the training team for both the Anna Freud Centre and another mental health charity, Sarah is experienced in delivering engaging, high-quality training for a wide range of professionals who work with children, both in-house and bespoke for clients. This work incorporates engaging with senior staff with different backgrounds, skills and experience and who have differing views of mental health. Training includes developing strategies and supporting senior leaders to foster cultural and organisational change in their setting.
