More about me

I m an experienced workplace wellbeing consultant and senior mental health trainer with an academic background in business and clinical psychology. I initially started out in cross-cultural leadership development and international recruitment. Later gaining experience in the clinical field working with people with complex and severe enduring mental illness.

Combining my training background and clinical experience I specialised in mental health training. I developed and led a fully accredited Mental Health Training Academy for the charity ‘Mind’, managing a substantial training team, delivering therapeutic counselling qualifications and workplace wellbeing programs in large organisations and educational settings.

Over the years I have trained GPs, A&E staff, education professionals, senior executives, middle managers and staff across all sectors and industries. I am a licensed and highly rated MHFA trainer and have trained hundreds of MHFAs.My expertise lies in safe implementation strategies for these support networks.

I currently work as an Associate Trainer with some of the largest national and global organisations on mental health culture change programs, embedding prevention, earliest intervention, and crisis support.

My area of expertise is in workplace suicide prevention and cross-cultural mental health aspects, and I draw my own mental strength from physical activity, nature, mindfulness and exploring different cultures.
