By profession I am an Occupational Therapist with 11 years experience in the NHS mental health services and practising solely in private practice since 2006.
Having studied for my Occupational Therapy qualification in York, I worked as a mental health therapist within a variety of NHS settings including inpatient mental health, day hospital and community mental health teams.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and belong to the British Association of Occupational Therapist (BAOT). I adhere to the College of Occupational Therapist’s code of ethics and professional conduct.

In my NHS and private practice work, I enjoy working with people from a variety of different backgrounds and with a range of emotional and physical difficulties.
