Hello, my name is Paula Tomé and I am a student at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust (Child, adolescent and family mental well-being: multidisciplinary practice). In order to complete the course I need to do a Family Observation. I am looking for a willing family (preferably with at least one child aged 3 or above) in West London that will allow me to observe their family in their family home. The observations will be one and half hours each time (twice), and we would meet prior to the first one and also at the end to say thank you.

The purpose of doing an observation as part of this Tavistock course is to help students learn about families as systemic environments.

The Tavistock Clinic is part of the NHS and I have had an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check. If parents do agree, then the observation is carried out on the basis of careful confidentiality and all relevant paperwork, including a letter from the Tavistock.

Previous families that have participated in this type of observation found it to be an enriching and fun experience.

I am a mum of two teenage boys.

If you are interested, please contact me to find out more.

You can contact me here or email me at or 07711375215.

You may also contact Adi Steiner, Course Lead at or call if you would like to speak with her.

The website provides information on the course I am undertaking:

Many thanks,

Paula Tomé
