Specialising early in my nursing career, I worked for 17 years in Primary Care. I qualified as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse in 2001 after a brief spell as a Staff Nurse in a busy neurology ward in North West England. I have practiced in England and Scotland in a diverse range of communities and my role included promoting the health and wellbeing of children and their carers, delivering health interventions such as immunisations, health screening and child protection and safeguarding. I have been involved in delivering educational training to Foster Carers and became a Practice Educator in 2006, being responsible for the education of the work-based element of the post registration Health Visitor training programme. My clinical interests, which led me to undertake a small research project in Atlanta, Georgia were associated with the scope of the therapeutic relationship and parental experience of attachment and loss.  Having an interest in psychotherapeutic approaches in nursing, I completed an MA in Counselling in 2015 and have volunteered weekly as a Counsellor since 2013.  My counselling interests include the integrative approaches as influenced by personal philosophy and clinically I am influenced systemic and narrative therapeutic approaches. I was appointed as a Lecturer at Nursing at Queen Margaret University in 2015 and input into the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum with a special interest in Public Health and Wellbeing and psychosocial models of practice.  I lead the MSc in Person-Centred Practice (Public Health and Wellbeing) which is underpinned by a person-centred approach to health and social care and aims to develop future public health practitioners, who will be ‘humanly’ responsive to the needs of people and be open to the possibility of working in radically more effective ways, with people, communities and populations.

My interests within these programmes span many subject areas including care systems, bio-psychosocial models of health and wellbeing, fifth wave public health and applied psychology. I am also involved in teaching communication skills to undergraduate nursing students.
