I have been working in the field of mental health for over 20 years. My clinical experience includes settings within private practise and third sector mental health organisations in the USA and UK. I’ve provided individual and family psychotherapy to clients who have wide-ranging mental health experiences; I promote developing strengths to enable individuals and communities to thrive. My work is based on positive psychology which is founded in the belief that people want to find meaning, develop their potential and live fulfilling lives.  In addition to health care settings, I’ve worked at several higher education institutions before coming to the University of Edinburgh.
