I am an experienced frontline social worker with over fifteen years' experience in the fields of Mental Health and Learning Disability. Most recently I was a team manager of the Mental Health Team based in Harrogate. I was also Safeguarding Lead in the same area.
I hold postgraduate qualifications at MA level that qualified me to act as an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) and a Best Interest Assessor (BIA). I am an experienced and fully-qualified Practice Educator and have supported many students through their practice placements.
