Sonia Worthington
Managing Director

My goal for setting up Parenting Solutions Devon is to support families and their children when going through difficult times.  To support parents to positively and confidently parent their children in a safe and caring manner, to enhance their family life and relationships.  
My background has been working in the Devon area as a family support practitioner for the past 25 years, working with families experiencing high complex issues and supporting them to make better choices and decisions over family life. 
In  my career I  have worked in many safeguarding services,  such as the NHS, Education and Local Authorities and I have gained invaluable experience, training and skills to continue to support parents and children going through difficulties. 
Parenting Solutions Devon is a private run company that is established to help and advise the families of Devon, giving them every opportunity available to build a loving and nurturing family home life.
