Book due out August 2024 with Wiley  - Practical Human Behaviour Change for the Health and Welfare of Animals

I am a Mental Health Nurse with over 40 years experience of clinical practice, service management, training and education. I am experienced in training needs analysis, designing bespoke training packages and delivering sessions, days and longer courses. I am also an independent researcher and write about mental health issues, animals and their impact on humans, and training and education. I have also volunteered in Equine Welfare for over 30 years. 

I regularly deliver longer behaviour change, including Motivational Interviewing courses  for animal health, care and welfare workers to support the owners and clients they work with to make behaviour changes to improve the welfare of their animals. I also deliver a similar course for health and social care workers. 

Other courses include bespoke Mental Health Awareness courses for a variety of workers. These can be tailored to particular needs for professional groups or organisations.

Courses can be delivered online or face to face. 

Clinical supervision and reflective practice course design and delivery for both human health and animal health and welfare workers. 

Writing coaching and supporting others  to write for publication. 

Using Supervision for Animal
Welfare Workers Operating
Remotely During a Pandemic

Sam Chubbock from World Horse Welfare I presented at the International Supervision Week in 2022.  

We reported on some novel interventions done in recent years with equine welfare workers.

A number of the World Horse Welfare team have been trained by in the use of Motivational Interviewing (MI), and then reflective practice groups (also known as supervision) were used following the training to support people in transferring these skills into practice. Our presentation is intended to give an overview of MI and how reflective practice groups have been used following the training, and we will look at what animal welfare organisations and workers might take from this and how reflective practice might be used by others working in this field.

Writing for Publication

Half day and whole day workshops

Practical workshops which will give you knowledge of what to write and where and how to submit for publication. 

With a mix of information about the whole of the writing for publication process and practical exercises to start you on your writing project you will come away with a plan of how to progress with your writing.

It is recognised that three main issues get in the way of successfully writing for publication; confidence, time and how to actually write. These workshops look at all of these areas and how you can overcome them with ideas, tips and methods that can be individualised to meet you needs.
