I am a very calm and relaxed person. I do enjoy a nice walk, reading and swimming.
I have been involved in animal welfare (rescue charities and my own rescues) all of my life.
I class myself as a very confident person. I have never felt out of my depth with any situation that I have had to deal with, partly due to the many years of experience that I have.
I have many year's of reference's and all relevant documents, including CRB/First Aid Certificate. My references are excellent and checkable. I have my own vehicle and I have my own insurance.
I am currently training to be a First Responder.
I have worked with children of all ages from birth to 16yrs of age for over 40 years, so I have a vast amount of experience.
I have worked many time's as a proxy parent and thoroughly enjoy this type of work.
I would describe myself as firm but fair and I always look forward to meeting new families.
I am happy to do housework, walk the dog/dogs, feed the chickens etc
I really have carried out numerous tasks throughout my time as a Nanny and I do not have a 'will not do' list!
I started working with a family of 5 children when I was 16. Personally, I feel that all my 40 yrs of experience is better than qualification's.

Tricia was amazing, she looked after my 3 & 5 year old for a few days and nights. For various reasons my little girls are really sensitive and have only stayed away from me a few times so I was really worried that they wouldn’t settle but Tricia was great with them, and knew exactly how to handle them. They both asked when she was coming back so that’s got to be a brilliant sign. She really is your very own Mary poppins! Thanks Tricia xx
Trish looked after my 4 year old and 9 month old for a whole weekend while I went away.
I was let down by my childcare arrangement and contacted her last minute for help. We had a meeting which was also last minute. She has a very kind nature and put me at ease during the meeting and I just knew my children would be okay in her hands.
We had a few blips such as me being stuck in traffic but she wasn’t phased by anything. My eldest loved his time with her and didn’t even miss me! And my 9 month old took to her very well, usually she’s very clingy and won’t settle with others without me there.
For someone to take on a huge job with very young children just shows how experienced they are and I would love to have Trish again if I need help with childcare in the future.
Massive thank you!
Trish looked after my daughter when I needed an overnight nanny at short notice. She was everything that I could have hoped for and more. My 2 year old adored her and spoke about her for days when she had left, I would recommend her to anyone.
Trish set my mind totally at ease, was in contact whenever I needed her to be and could not have been more professional.
Trish calmly arrived on the scene to save the day when I was required to return to work when our daughter was 3 months old. I was at ease from the moment she walked in for the interview, and she was with us until Georgie was three. She was an immense support to us at every stage of her development.
They attended music classes and swimming together, but also very happy at home, keeping a nap schedule and playing, but moving on to starting to write and learn letters and numbers. They were often out and about locally, and Georgie got used to the rhythms of attending the library and taking our dog for walks... the routines gave her (and our terrier!) a lot of structure that helped the household run.
Trish is a patient nanny and excellent parental sounding board, never judgemental, but direct with her own experiences and views, which as a brand new parent was really helpful and reassuring.
Trish became very much a member of our family and someone that our daughter saw as a close friend and support. We miss her dearly but know we will keep in touch.
I was new to Cheltenham when my daughter was born so when it came to finding a nanny/babysitter, all I had to go on were reviews and the instinctual feeling when you meet someone. That was nearly two years ago and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Trish made me feel so calm during our interview and then proved herself to be a jewel when it came to her interaction with my daughter. On a personal note, you can tell she loves children and she's clearly very good at her "job". And on a professional level, she is outstanding to work with. Often times parents worry if their child is ok when they're alone with a babysitter but I can honestly tell you, we don't ever have that feeling when Trish is at our house.
