I have worked in care for ten years in residential homes, day care settings and for social services. My last role was as a deputy manager at a day centre for elderly people. I have a degree in psychology and sociology and an advanced certificate in counselling which has proven incredibly valuable whilst working with elderly people. I feel that today's society can be very alienating for the older generation and I am skilled at supporting such individuals in their needs.

I have a great sense of humour, listen well and am a warm person. I'm not afraid of hard work, I respect individuality and always try to find solutions so as to aid individuals to live their lives in the way they want to.

I am a full time mother, I enjoy travelling, yoga, skiing and spending time with family. I love all sorts of music and laughing.

Please note that I'm only available on Saturday or Sunday afternoons in north London.
