Health Visitors

Health visitors use Comfort Zone intervention to work with parents to form secure attachments to their babies.

Training for Health Visitors

Empower parents to form strong attachments with their babies and children using my unique Comfort Zone intervention. I worked as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS for 25 years the latter half in perinatal mental health services. Based on this experience I developed Comfort Zone intervention to help parents tune-in emotionally to their child as a first step to promoting a secure attachment. I have trained many Health Visitors and Nursery Nurses to use it with parents. It is a useful addition to your ‘toolkit’ as there are few interventions in this area.

What is Comfort Zone?

  • Comfort Zone is an intervention based on Attachment Theory (Bowlby 1969) and designed to promote secure attachments
  • It empowers parents to monitor and improve their interactions with their child
  • It helps parents to ‘tune-in’ to the emotional effects they have on their child
