About me

I qualified as a social worker in 1999 (University of London), practicing full time until 2008 and part time until 2012. 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+). At UWE some of my teaching is focused on mental health care, and working with adults at risk.

I am undertaking doctoral research at Cardiff University. My research is exploring the extent to which mental health social workers use their knowledge of the social determinants of mental health to inform their practice.
