Hi! I currently live in London. I am a Project Manager for the Forensic Mental Health Practitioner service for Together.

The role is a rewarding multifaceted and multi-directional one. Since beginning in January 2015 I have grown in my appreciation of working alongside other skilled mental health practitioners. My skill and confidence supporting others has also grown too.

September 2015 I started as a visiting lecturer, supporting students at the University of Greenwich. Working with students on a counselling course is rewarding on a number of levels: their reflective inquiry has been enlivening and enriching.

In 2014 I worked at a number of interesting places including a prison, the University of Kent and Family Health Isis. Working within 3 different health roles I was able to witness mental illness as a health concern for all.

I counsel and supervise in private practice and like the diversity of client contact I have in my working week.

When not working I like to; write, play Basketball, ride my Longboard (Silversurfer) play chess listen to good Jazz and Bake artisan breads.

I am passionate about the work I am involved with and look for the moment when the light comes on for a person I am working with. Let's Connect!
