I have been contacted by journalist and writer, Alice Wright, who is currently conducting her research for a book on parenting. Her aim is to bring together different voices and experiences of motherhood. this idea is to show that there isn't just one way of being a mother.
The project is in the early stages and she is reaching out to any step mums out there who might be interested in telling their story. If you think you might be interested then you can contact Alice via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask her more about the project.
Almost a year ago I started working with October Films in the development of a documentary with Rio and Kate Ferdinand. The programme was focused on their journey to becoming a stepfamily and I was thrilled to be asked to be involved with the project. Rio and Kate are great role models and I'm confident the documentary will help so many couples who are struggling to cope with the challenges of stepfamily life.
The documentary is being shown on BBC1 Monday 10th Feb 2020.
I'm delighted to announce that my latest book: Understanding Stepfamilies - An integrated Approach for Therapists and relationship professionals, is now available.

If you're finding things difficult at the moment why not talk to an expert? Appointments are available in Maidenhead, Berkshire however I find that Skype works really well and is often easier. For more info contact email@example.com
The Happy Steps workshops for stepfamilies are a great way to learn more about stepfamily dynamics and meet others in the same position. All courses are currently full, however if you would like to reserve a place on the next one please contact me.
I am delighted to announce that I have been working with the BBC Ideas team to create a short video to help stepfamilies.
