I am a qualified social worker (Diploma in Social Work) and Practice Educator. I have also trained as a counsellor and family therapist and studied successfully for a Level 5 Diploma (and NVQ Level 4) in Management.

I am a registered social worker with broad experience of working with a range of service users within the field of social care. Since the 1990s I have worked in the fields of mental health, homelessness, children and families, substance misuse, older adults, young carers and teenage parents.

I became a qualified social worker in 2002 with a DipSW and graduated from (what was then) the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside. I am also a qualified counsellor and practice educator and have achieved management qualifications since becoming a qualified social worker.

I have worked in both the voluntary and statutory sectors and throughout my career have maintained a keen interest in professional training and development, as well as improving service user involvement in service provision.
