I am a senior lecturer in occupational therapy in the institute of health and social care. I joined LSBU in 2003 having previously worked at East London and City Mental Health Trust. I also work as an occupational therapist in a parental mental health team at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. I teach on the pre-registration undergraduate and postgraduate occupational therapy programmes.

I am passionate about occupational therapy because it provides a person-centred approach to intervention to support meaningful occupations for individuals. My interests focus on mental health, perinatal mental health, the therapeutic use of self and groupwork.

My recent work projects include evaluation of a perinatal group for women with mental health issues with infants under 6 months and a chapter for a perinatal text (in print) – Group Work in Perinatal Mental Health.

I contributed to: Davis, J. & Lovegrove, M.(2019) Allied health professionals and psychologists in the maternity care pathway. London: Health Education England.

I also contributed to the NHS Health Education England Perinatal Mental Health Occupational Therapy online training (2019)

I am a co-founder of the RCOT specialist section mental health - perinatal clinical forum committee and during the pandemic have delivered monthly networking and learning events for those interested in this area including students, academics and occupational therapists.

I have recently completed delivery of clinical supervision training to 3 external trusts.

In 2021 I was invited to join the host of ‘OT & Chill’ podcast Episode 32 and present my work in perinatal mental health.

I have presented outcomes of group work in April 2021 at the Infant Mental Health Conference, South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and the Role of OT in domestic violence at the LSBU Occupational Therapy Society December 2020.
