About Me

"What can I say about Caroline? She is one of the most hard-working, ernest, knowledgeable and honest consultants you will ever meet. Caroline has attended several of our courses and the work she produces is of the highest possible standards. She thrives on new research and won't stop until she understands as much as there is to know - why? For her genuine desire to support babies and families in the most evidence-based and considered manner.  Caroline is a pleasure to work with, supportive of other colleagues, holistic in her approach and always striving for the best for her families she works with.  Caroline also is someone not scared to say, she is not sure what is going on or she doesn't know the answer, but then will ask and will research, get feedback and then share this with families and other colleagues. I recommend her without hesitation."

Community paediatrician, London, UK (NHS) and Director of BRTP.

A little bit more about me…

From the age of 13 during my first babysitting jobs, I knew I loved working with children. Naturally calm and patient in nature, I saw the importance of good communication. This approach continues to inform my professional practices today.

Having been born to teacher parents (my mum a teacher in reception and my dad a sports teacher), I was always quite academic at school. This has prevailed throughout the years as I continue to enjoy keeping abreast of developments and published research in my field. 

I am continually fascinated by children; they never cease to amaze me and are by far my best teachers. The wonder of watching a newborn baby drink in the big wide world is captivating. If you are looking for me at a large social gathering, start by following the laughter of children... that is most likely where I will be!

Today, I have a 7-year-old son who has taught me so much more about parenting than I could have ever imagined. He is kind, empathetic, and as much fascinated with life as he is fascinating.

My personal interests include playing the piano and flute (although a little rusty now!), and I am a competent swimmer and skier. I love travelling and seeing the world from different perspectives, not least through the eyes of a child!
