Having hearing loss and family who are Deaf enables me to experience first hand the issues the arise around Deafness. I have worked as an Advice Worker for Deaf people for 5 years in London, this included providing Deaf Awareness to many hearing individuals on a day to day bases.  For the last 5 years, I have successfully run a Signing Group in teaching them Sign language to support developing speech and face to face communication.

I am fully trained in British Sign Language (BSL), achieving my NVQ Level 4 (Now level 6) in 2010. I am also trained in PTTLS. (Completed in 2012)
