About me

With over 30 years working in gynaeoncology and over 20 years as a clinical nurse specialist I have developed a global reputation as an expert in the field. I lead a team of CNS's supporting women and their families at diagnosis and throughout their cancer pathway and beyond. As an advanced nurse practitioner I work autonomously undertaking my own clinics for BRCA testing, giving results (including diagnosis, recurrence and good news), contribute to making and explaining treatment plans, supporting patients with decision making ensuring they are central to the process.

I've written extensively including national guidance on the management of gynae cancers and the late effects of treatments; presented at national and international events; I also support the gynae cancer charities on expert panels, writing patient information and presenting at events.

My interest in counselling started in the early 1990's and continued along side my nursing. I trained as a psychosexual therapist 10 years ago working holistically using a bio-psycho-social model with all sexual difficulties (male and female sexual dysfunctions, sexuality, sexual rehabilitation etc).

Due to the amount of trauma many of my clients have experienced I've continued my training to use trauma informed practices for complex trauma (embodied somatic work) and EMDR which has NICE approval as treatment for PTSD.
