About Me

My name is Rahana Hussain.

I am an experienced trainer and consultant in safeguarding and child protection in the U.K. I have been independent since 2000 and have built a reliable and highly regarded reputation for the training that I deliver.

I have an excellent reputation for being a skilled and dynamic trainer in this field. I am passionate about professionals developing their learning curves, and assist by using facilitation techniques which allow for learning on courses and after. The courses are aimed at essentially keeping the child in focus and building skills/using tools which allow professionals to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people. My training helps practitioners to develop both their confidence and competence.

“Hi Rahana,
Just wanted to say again how great the training on attachment and loss was. I have bought most of the books you recommended. Really looking forward to reading the slides you send me. Once again can I just say how much you inspired and motivated me to read more books to develop my knowledge. Hope to see you in training again.”
