Training provided by
Iron Mill College tutor Heather Jenkin. Heather originally trained as a social worker at Exeter University and went on to specialise as a child and adolescent therapist. She has over 20 years’ experience in working with children who are neurodiverse. Most of the Heather’s work is informed by neuroscience, she takes a particular interest in Bruce Perry’s neurosequential model and applying different models of therapy depending on the stages and development of the child’s brain. For instance, sensory based creative therapy using water, animal assisted therapy and a range of creative materials, can often help a child regulate to be able to engage in another appropriate therapeutic modality to fit the child’s therapeutic journey.
