After completing studies in Cambridge and the Royal London Hospital, I trained in psychiatry in South London and the Maudsley Hospital. In 2003 I moved to Newcastle and worked in the East Community Mental Health Team. In 2010 I started work in Rehabilitation and Recovery in the South of Tyne localities. My clinical work is now at Hopewood Park, on Clearbrook which is the CNTW Female High Dependency Rehabilitation Unit for complex psychosis.

Since 2003 I have been an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Newcastle University with a focus on research. I am interested in changes to mental health services that have occurred in England, and particularly changes in rates of involuntary detention in hospitals since the 1980s. I am also involved in research trials investigating the treatment of schizophrenia.
