About Me

I'm a qualified First Aid Trainer and have 25 years First Aid Experience. My First Aid background is from 16 years in the Metropolitan Police where I often had to put the theory into practice when arriving first at a scene. I spent most of my Service in the Child Protection Team, and now hope to share advice on avoiding accidents, and give confidence to others if ever faced with an emergency situation. 

More recently I have become a Mum and there's been a couple of times I've been glad of my first aid knowledge. The reality is not many of us would know what to do in an emergency, and when you are looking after children it's crucial to know some basics.

My Aim

My aim is to teach simple first aid skills which you will remember should you need them in an emergency. First Aid can be something which is easily forgotten, so we do lots of practicals in my classes to help memorise the skills, and to build confidence. There are exercises to get you thinking about how you would deal with different emergencies, and everyone gets plenty of practice on the baby and child manikins. It’s a very informal learning atmosphere where everyone can ask questions in order to fully understand what to do in a emergency with a child.
