About

I qualified as an occupational therapist in 1994 following a career in NHS management and worked ed in mental health as an academic, researcher and pactitioner. I spent a number of years specialising in forensic mental health as I am speficially interested in the occupational injustices people experience.

I have strong networks with colleagues nationally and internationally; and works on a consultancy basis as a practitioner, educator and researcher. I am very keen to supervise postgraduate and doctoral students.
