Specialist areas:

I am passionate about public service and welcome the opportunities that change presents to improve front-line delivery. I am an inspirational trainer of front-line staff being able to communicate my own enthusiasm for my subject into a broader understanding and direct practical applications for staff.

I have 30 years’ experience of working within health and social care sectors. I am proud to be a qualified social worker and best interests assessor with specialist forensic mental health and Mental Capacity Act experience. I currently manage an integrated CMHT in Cardiff returning to my frontline roots and my passion for direct delivery of services to the public. I also undertake specialist independent mental health tribunal reports.

I have an extensive record of providing training to frontline staff, being a regular trainer on the South Wales AMHP consortium as well as a popular conference speaker and in-house trainer on troubled young people, mental health law, the Mental Capacity Act and risk assessment and its management.
