I trained and qualified as a psychiatric nurse in 1987 from the Lawson School of Nursing, St Augustine’s Hospital, Chartham. Since that time I have worked in a range of statutory mental health settings including in-patient, residential adolescent unit and the community. I have also worked in the voluntary/charity sector as a senior support worker and managed a day service focused on vocational rehabilitation for adults with short and long term mental health issues.
I have a diploma from the University of Kent in Dynamic Psychotherapy Skill and a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. I recently completed a Level 3 award in Education and Training at Canterbury College: part of my role within Catching Lives is training new staff and volunteers in Mental Health Awareness.
