Dinah Mears - Course Tutor
I began my career by training as a State Registered Nurse and then moved into community work running Family Support Groups and a Youth Club for Devon County Council. In 1993 I worked with the International Red Cross resettling traumatised refugee families to Devon from the war in the former Yugoslavia. I began my therapeutic training in 1999, alongside my role in a child protection team where I began to develop an open access support service for parents and children.
While completing both the Foundation and Clinical practice Certificate in Family Therapy from Exeter University's Department of Psychology, I spent 10 years working as a manager of Family Support Services in the field of Child Protection.
I then worked as a counsellor and trainer with Relate for 10 years, before developing my own private counselling practice. During the last sixteen years, I have also become a specialist trainer and consultant in the field of Domestic Abuse, Child Sexual Abuse and Child Sexual Exploitation. I deliver training on these subjects across the UK.
