About me

I qualified as a social worker in 1999 (University of London) and I am a former social work senior practitioner and qualified Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP). I am also a Thorn trained practitioner in integrated approaches to psychosocial interventions in mental health care. I worked for The Open University (2008-2017) and now at UWE (2017+). My teaching is focused on mental health care and working with adults at risk.

I am the Programme Leader for UWE's post graduate training in Approved Mental Health Practice and Co-Programme Leader for UWE's undergraduate qualifying social work training.

My research interest area is mental health care, particularly in relation to health inequalities and social work practice. I am a doctoral student at Cardiff University undertaking research about this topic with the Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.

Registered social worker with Social Work England (no: SW33448) and a fellow of the Higher Education Academy
