Over the past 15 years, as well as working independently in private practice, I have worked in the NHS and for several organisations in the voluntary sector. I currently work mainly in private practice, and as a mentor to university students with a mental health diagnosis. I am also involved in doing academic research looking at the impact of bereavement, and supervise doctoral students with their own research.
Earlier in life, I was an academic psychologist then worked for a large corporation for 10 years before managing a successful training company. I consider myself very lucky to have found such a rewarding profession which puts me in close contact with my clients. I am grateful to the people who trust me with their stories, and constantly add to my own learning.
