I started my career as a general nurse before moving into mental health nursing, where I worked firstly in acute admissions and then in an adult community mental health team for 15 years. During this time I also undertook my degree in health care and specialist courses in psychodynamic and cognitive analytic therapies.

In 2002 I joined Bournemouth University as a Practice Educator and am currently seconded into a teaching role in the mental health team. At the moment I am studying for a PhD looking at the lived experiences of adults who grew up with parents who were suffering from serious mental illness.
