Dorothy Boswell, Parent Coach

Dorothy BoswellI have coached and taught parenting to individuals, couples and groups. I have a wide experience of the issues that concern parents,having worked in schools in some of London’s most deprived boroughs, as well as the offices of international law firms and investment companies. I have written and presented workshops and courses for churches, Sure Start projects, parents of children on the autism spectrum, recovering drug users and Youth Offending Teams. I often work with parents who are required to do a parenting course  in cases of access or custody following divorce or separation.

I studied education at Goldsmiths’ College, London and I have taught children and adults of all ages, as well as teenagers with learning and behavioural difficulties. I trained in parenting with the national charity Parentline Plus (now known as Family Lives) and I am a consultant for Parenting UK and a member of the Parenting Practice in North London.Can Parent logo
