About Edwina

Edwina lives in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. Originally born in England into a white middle-class family she moved to Scotland to university and considers herself to be Scottish!! She is an Educational Psychologist and DDP Practitioner, Consultant and Trainer. Since working in residential care and education as a manager and key-worker in the 80’s she has had a passion for supporting residential settings to be the best they can be bringing DDP Practice, training and consultancy into the organisations she has worked with.  

Edwina undertook DDP Level One training with Dan Hughes in 2003 which started her journey to becoming certified. The light-bulb moments in that training committed Edwina to the journey of bringing DDP to Scotland which she continues to do.  

In more recent years Edwina has been on a challenging journey to recognise her own unconscious prejudices becoming more and more aware of the unending issues of power and inequality in our society and across the world. She is currently involved in co-facilitating workshops for Black and minority ethnic adults: ‘Attachment, Racism and the Impact on Relationships’.

Edwina and her husband have three children, one of whom is adopted, and a granddaughter who is the love of all our lives!


Continuing her passion for residential care Edwina has recently co-authored a book with George Thompson and Kim Golding.
