Antounette previously worked as a Probation Officer for the National Probation Service in Birmingham for 30 years.
Antounette’s work centred on the assessment and management of high risk offenders, especially sex offenders both in the community and in prison.
Antounette trained as a psychotherapist and completed the training for STOP SO.
When Antounette became aware of how prolific sexual offending has become, and the devastation caused to victims and all concerned, Antounette decided to have a change of career and specialise in offering therapy to those committing these offences, and supporting those affected by their conduct.
For Antounette, the most important thing is prevention, as well as desistance through the interpersonal relationship within therapy. Antounette hopes to promote this to a wider audience.
