Personal profile


I currently work within the Department of Nursing and Midwifery within the School of Human and Health Sciences. Primarily postgraduate on the Advanced Clinical Practitioner Course but I also contribute to other postgraduate and undergraduate adult nursing programmes. e.g., I am module lead for a new module aimed at health care practitioners working with vulnerable adults.

I qualified as a nurse in 1982 and gained a range of experience in specialist and acute areas. I also served four years in the Queen Alexanders Royal Army Nursing Corps both in the UK and Germany. I previously worked as a school nurse since 1998 and completed the specialist practitioner in 2012. Within my role as a SCPHN I gained extensive knowledge and experience working with children and their families particularly in the areas of safeguarding and emotional health and wellbeing. My interest in these areas led to my further training at the university of Leeds where I completed a MA in psychotherapy and counselling. Whilst a student at the University I was involved with 2 qualitative research projects.

I initially worked in higher education in 2016 as a lecturer practitioner on the post graduate SCPHN course. Following early retirement from the NHS in 2016, I continued to work on the SCPHN course as a lecturer until 2018. I have also previously worked as a lecturer at the University Centre, Blackburn College with undergraduates on a counselling and psychotherapy course.
