Who am I?

I am a consultant psychiatrist in a large NHS Trust in the North East of England.

What do I do?

I lead the Mindfulness Team in our NHS Trust, which provides programmes of MBCT for service-users, carers and staff. We also work with external organisations and run an in-house foundation-level MBCT teacher training programme.

In my role as OMC Associate I am involved (together with Willem Kuyken and Chris Cullen) in developing the MBCT for Life programme and I also sometimes present at conferences and deliver training.

Why I love working at the OMC

It is fabulous to be involved with a centre of excellence at the University of Oxford and it has been a real pleasure to get to know the wonderful OMC team!
