Author, Coach, Social Care Professional, The Overwhelmed Manager
I hold a Diploma in European Humanities , and two level 5 Diplomas in Leadership and Management, and Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care. I have extensive experience in Stress Management, providing courses for HM Prison Service and hospices. I was a Prison Governor and have worked in some of the toughest establishments in the UK. Following 20 years in the Prison Service I have worked in Social care for over 10 years at Home Manager level and above. I have managed Multi-Sites, turnaround projects, commissioned new, luxury homes, and Retirement Villages with DCA. I used to be a real stress head, working in highly volatile environments tends to do that! However, about 6 years ago I came across a new psychology, a new way of experiencing reality and the world around me and nothing has been the same since. I wrote The Overwhelmed Manager to help colleagues who may be experiencing Stress and Overwhelm.
