The training Cat delivered for us was fantastic! Cat has impressive knowledge and a wealth of experience to share in Zones of Regulation and Restorative Approaches, Circle training, and professional development for staff in all areas of SEND. As a trainer she was engaging and humorous and modelled behaviours for all staff in school, offering additional support wherever it was needed. Cat has had a significant impact in how we approach behaviour across the school.

Cat is wonderful trainer, ‘walking the talk’ of her restorative values, along with a slice of good humour. Her extensive lived experience in both mainstream and special schools, as a teacher and member of SLT, guarantees her sessions provide genuine ‘doable’ knowledge and skills for attendees to take away, empowering them to become more skilled in the reading and meeting of children’s needs. 

Sarah Baggaley, Service Lead for Stockport Family workforce development team & Restorative Strategic Lead for Stockport Family & Education


Without Cat’s support there would have been no way we would have had the confidence to challenge our child’s school over the failings in his care. Her professionalism, knowledge and care empowered us to meet with the school to discuss their practice, which resulted in a positive outcome moving forwards.

Cat has been a tremendous advocate for us, she is highly skilled and experienced in SEN and we cannot recommend her services more highly.
