Introducing Gabriella

Gabriella in conversation with a small group of people

Specialising in systemic safeguarding & transformative neurodiversity consultancy, I empower organisations to create cultures of safety, trust & inclusivity thereby unlocking the full potential of your workforce.


Integrating my lived experience and professional understanding, I sit at an interesting intersection of safeguarding and neurodiversity where the vulnerabilities and issues that are created in both spaces are often held separately. I bring knowledge of the interplay that exists between them which can radically inform how an organisation positively operates.

I am dedicated to equipping people & organisations with the necessary tools and insights to support their staff and leaders effectively.

My experience and expertise:

I have over 25 years of experience in the UK and internationally, working for organisations that support children, young people and families including the NSPCC, where I led a team of staff and volunteers to deliver an abuse prevention programme across six London Local Authorities. I worked closely with DSLs and Local Safeguarding Boards and also delivered training to parents, carers, school staff and governors.

I have also worked (and continue to work) in primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, with local safeguarding boards and with charities and businesses who want to ensure their safeguarding is robust and up-to-date.

I spent a number of years working in anti-human trafficking: 

  • as an NRM First Responder interviewing adult victims of human trafficking and modern slavery
  • training professionals such as teachers, magistrates, clergy, health workers, local authority staff and many others on how to spot the signs of trafficking and what to do next
  • teaching in schools, colleges and universities
  • as a speaker and panel-member at fundraising and awareness events across the country

In the last decade, a profound personal discovery has significantly shaped my professional journey: the realisation of my neurodiversity. This sparked the vision that led me to launch my freelance training and consultancy business where I support and deliver systemic training.

My mission is to foster a more inclusive and understanding workplace culture. Through my work, I am dedicated to equipping organisations with the necessary tools and insights to support their staff and leaders effectively.

I create environments where diversity in thought and perspective is not only recognised but celebrated. By sharing my experiences and expertise, I bridge gaps in understanding and promote a more empathetic and supportive workplace for everyone so that employees reach their full potential and businesses succeed.

Real change begins with validating the human experience by listening to stories and experiences that everyone holds inside themselves. By doing so, people can know that they have real value and worth.

THIS is why I am a safeguarding and neurodiversity consultant – because I want to empower others to do the same through my training and support.

How do I do that?

I create experiences that empower others…

by ensuring safe spaces where people know there are no wrong or unintelligent questions.

I make difficult topics and issues easier to sit with and process…

and transform complicated subjects so they are easier to understand.

I challenge thinking, understanding and behaviours…

with a deep unwavering empathy.

By placing children, young people, families and teams at the heart of a collaborative, person-centred, strengths-based approach, my training provides you with tools, techniques and strategies to take away and put into use when supporting those you work with.

There ARE solutions. YOU are part of the solution. Look around you – there are so many of us who are working to make a change and one of them is YOU.
