I teach across the courses in the division of psychology, mostly at post graduate level. My teaching and research both focus upon psychotherapy and mental health. In addition to working at London South Bank University, I also work as a senior psychotherapist in private practice. I have over twenty years' NHS clinical experience working with people with mental health problems and difficulties in living.

I am a British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) accredited psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer, a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a registered mental health nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
