I qualified from the Edinburgh Doctorate in 1997 having been based for my placements in Highland. Since then I have worked in a variety of adult mental health settings initially in Glasgow then for the last 9 years within Forth Valley. I have a particular interest in using compassion focused approaches.
I joined the Doctorate as Clinical Tutor in 2013 and mainly have responsibility for the Grampian area. I work part time, with two days a week in the clinical tutor role and one day a week clinically in the Adult Mental health service in Forth Valley.
