I am an independent social worker, researcher, educator and writer. I draw on my practice and academic experience to offer research, evaluation and training services in Scotland and elsewhere, working with a range of colleagues and Associates with complementary skills.  The Consultancy’s particular focus lies in mental health, social work education, staff development and digital learning.

I am also employed by The Open University where I am involved in a range of activities, including tutoring in the Health and Social Care Faculty in Scotland, facilitating tutors’ online moderation skills, critical reading and writing materials.

I am registered as a social worker with the Scottish Social Services Council and am a member of the British Association of Social Workers.
