To date, some of her proudest professional achievements took place whilst working with vulnerable families across South Manchester. Helping these families through times of loss, bereavement and poverty, Diane took it as her vocation to ‘look after’ some of the most disadvantaged people in the area, something that she applied herself to with care and devotion.

Gaining The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services saw her presented with that very honour and after meeting HM The Queen & Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace in 2016, Diane couldn’t wait to get back to her private practice in Manchester and back to helping people.

She understands the community that she serves acutely, and her skill for helping young people in South Manchester, particularly those that live a life in the public eye, has helped her carve out something of a niche in terms of the demographic of her client base.
