I would like to contribute my organisational development and systemic skills and experience to shaping the Tavistock and Portman Trust’s future.
I am not afraid to be curious and ask questions that seek clarification and perturbs the system, to reach outcomes. I have worked in several health settings including the NHS CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services). I am able to draw on both my skills and training to engage in different strategic decision-making processes, be it in education or clinical. I am also keen to be included in the discussions and change around anti-racism that actively makes a difference to the communities the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust serves.
To the role of Governor, I bring the skills of exploring solutions to problems; public speaking; accountability; reporting outcomes; evaluating change; communicating with different groups of people from diverse communities; team building; confidence building; IT skills; managing stress & conflict; and managing new challenges. These are all supported by my experience below: previous business tutor at City University; previous internal auditor; trained family and systemic psychotherapist (with a special interest in trauma work) – UKCP, AFT & EMDR registered; I am a clinical supervisor (in training); facilitator in learning disabilities; facilitator in equality & diversity training; previous board trustee for housing project; and writer and researcher. I have lived experience of learning disabilities (dyslexia); and lived experience of racism and bullying in education and in the workplace.
