Leslie Ford

Clinical Consultant

I have worked in Child Development for 35 years, the last 16 years at Quinte Healthcare in Psychiatry. My work there was primarily with families assisting with high needs behaviour at home and at school. I also saw many parents for parent training.

I published the book Finding Calm in the Chaos: A Parenting Journey to help parents and families adopt positive parenting strategies in this ever-changing world.

I am an associate certified TCI trainer since 2001.

I have consulted for several years with SW&A, working with young people in care and also with private clients using therapeutic play, CBT, and other basic modalities under the supervision of Jeff Waplak.

I am the proud mother of 4 grown children and we have 4 grandchildren. I love to sew/quilt in my spare time.
