I am an independent social worker with over 20 years experience in the social care field, and 15 years post-qualifying experience as a social worker. I have practised independently for 8 years, offering a wide range of independent social work services in relation to adults with social care and health related needs. I offer services that are fully autonomous and independent of statutory and public bodies. My areas of specialism are adult mental health, learning disabilities and addiction. I have a vast array of experience across mental health services which includes dually diagnosed needs, forensic and secure settings, older people, and acute psychiatric delayed discharges.
