"IPSV"="Intimate Partner Sexual Violence "
If your service is interested in having input from me about IPSV, please contact me.

I have an associate Diploma in Welfare Studies (La Trobe University, Victoria, Australia). For more than a decade, I have studied IPSV extensively, and continue to do so. I have supported survivors of IPSV as well as sexual assault in general, and domestic violence for 22 years. I am a survivor of IPSV, and while I recognise that this is insufficient alone to tackle it from a professional point of view, neither do I discount it as a teaching tool. My work has accrued a degree of recognition internationally as having expertise in this topic. I am an articulate, skilled and - just in case this is important to know - friendly speaker.
  • Talks and Presentations: I am proficient in Power Point if you need an IPSV presentation. A talk or presentation can be as short ar as long as you need it to be.
  • Articles: I can write articles on IPSV, or have input into one for your publication
  • Consultancy: Is your service creating resources for survivors of IPSV? If you would like me to have input, or just to bounce a few ideas around, please get in touch.
    • What perspectives would you like me to share? I can speak/write about many different aspects of IPSV, or an overview of the topic including the centrally important parts. I am also happy to speak/write about my experience as a survivor
    • Who is your audience? I have a multidisciplinary know edge-base and therefore can tailor speaking/writing according to your audience, be they social workers, doctors ,clergy, survivors, general public and more. If it is a broad-based audience, there can be a little of something for everybody.
