As a Careers Adviser, I've gathered all my professional experience under one hat... ready to pass it on!


My own career includes varied experience as a Research Microbiologist, Teacher/Tutor, and Mental Health Practitioner, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Group Facilitator.

I have now retrained as a Careers Adviser, gathering all my professional experience under one hat. As a practitioner most of my experience has come from working in the voluntary sector, providing advice and guidance to young people so they could explore their options and re-engage with education and training, and to adults returning to work after a break or looking for a career change.

As a member of the Career Development Institute (CDI) I provide impartial advice and guidance to our full and part-time students, and to anyone in the community who is considering a return to education or training at any stage of life.

I am based at Abingdon and Oxford (The Union). My normal working week is Monday 10am-1.45pm, and Wednesday and Thursday all day.
