Welcome

 

This is the central hub for the things I make, think and do. 

 

 

Who am I? Why am I here?

 

I am a Chartered Psychologist and visiting lecturer working in private practice in central London. I am a current Governor of the Tavistock & Portman NHS Mental Health Trust and the former Chair of the British Psychological Society's Training Committee in Counselling Psychology - The group responsible for monitoring and assessing the standards of Counselling Psychology training across the UK. I formerly led the therapy service at HMP & YOI Holloway, Europe’s Largest Women’s prison (closed summer 2016)

A former finalist on The Great British Bake Off, I am now also an occasional TV presenter, food writer, contributor to radio, print and online media on food, psychology and the interaction of the two.
