I have been a practicing Mental Health Social Worker since 2001 and an Approved Mental Health Professional/Approved Social Worker since 2005.

From 2002, I have worked in an assertive outreach homeless multi-disciplinary mental health team, employed by the London Borough of Camden. As a Practice Tutor, I provide supervision and learning opportunities for Social Work Students.

I previously worked as a social work assistant and a support worker in the field of mental health and learning disabilities based in Cardiff from 1994 to 1997.

I have been working with Easl on a sessional basis since early 2012 and in September 2015 I became a permanent part time member of the Easl team. I have particular experience of working with street outreach teams and this forms the focus of much of my work with Easl.
