Independent Health Visiting

The Independent Health Visiting Service I offer is confidential, individual and professional. It is an alternative to the service offered by the NHS available at a time suitable to you. I can make referrals and liaise with your GP just as your NHS Health Visitor would.

As all families are different and are constantly developing, the services I offer are non judgmental, bespoke and lead by you. I like to offer you a range of solutions giving your family up to date, consistent and evidence based information. As well as working office hours, I’m available evenings, weekends and nights as needed. You will only see me for continuity of care ensuring no conflicting advice is given.

I started my career as a qualified BTEC Nursery Nurse and worked in nurseries and as a nanny within the family home. After 2 years I moved to Bristol and trained to be a Registered Sick Children’s Nurse, which I have done for 15 years. I have since completed a Bachelor of Science in Special Community Public Health - Health Visiting. I have worked as a Health Visitor for 3 years in Bristol for the NHS. Now I am working as a Health Visitor offering an Independent Health Visiting Service. I am very interested in sleeping or the lack of and supporting families through sleep deprivation. I love working and caring about families with anything they would like support with from Birth to 5 years old.

I am married and have 2 lovely children who are 3 and 7 years old, so I have first hand experience as well as the all important evidence base.
