Directory of VIG Practitioners
AVIGuk does not provide video interaction guidance services. We publish this directory as a means to help the public find services in their locality.
Most VIG practitioners are employed in local authorities, charities and health services. They normally only take referrals from other professionals on behalf of families who reside in their areas. Therefore, they do not feature in this directory.
The directory consists of independent practitioners that offer services directly to the service user or their representative. These services are normally fee-paying. A listing here does not amount to a recommendation by AVIGuk but, in order to be listed, their training has been accredited by AVIGuk and that they continue to be registered with us.
Accredited AVIGuk practitioner. Based in Brighton, I offer VIG across the South East and London. Professional and self referrals accepted.
Referrals accepted from local authorities. I work with families involved with social services at all levels, including fostering and adoption. My experience includes working in the perinatal period and with adolescents.
I am a qualified Social Worker with over 10 years' experience of supporting children and their families across statutory and charity sectors. I've been using Video Interaction Guidance with children and carers since 2018.
My interests and experience are using VIG to develop parenting skills and confidence after a period of adversity, supporting carers with perinatal mental health difficulties, and supporting families (including adoptive or special guardianship) where there are concerns that the care arrangement could break down.
I can provide Video Interaction Guidance privately and also funded through the Adoption Support Fund. This can be delivered in person in the Bristol area or remotely.
Please contact me for availability and email@example.com
