Previous work

I have worked mostly independently since 2013. Prior to this, I worked for six years in an NHS drugs and alcohol service and, in parallel, in an NSPCC team with children and young people; both roles involved helping people move forward following trauma or adversity. I have also worked with children in residential care and young offenders, and been lecturer and module lead on the UCL & Anna Freud Centre masters ‘Developmental Psychology & Clinical Practice’.

I have worked with CEOP (now the CEOP Command of the National Crime Agency) since 2007, first seconded from the NSPCC and then independently.
