I hold a BA in Criminology and Penal Science, and a Master of Laws in Legal Aspects of Medical Practice. I also hold a Certificate in Forensic Psychotherapy and trained as a family mediator. Having completed the Graduate Diploma in Law, I studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple. I am a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Research in Law at the University of Bedfordshire and an Honorary Visiting Fellow at Anglia Law School. I was also appointed to the Tribunals Service by the Lord Chancellor and was appointed as a Ministerial Advisor to the Home Office.
I regularly undertake medico-legal reports and appear in court in regard to criminal, civil and family law proceedings. I have been regularly involved in care proceedings, parenting assessments and contact disputes. I have a particular interest in vulnerable witness and special measures in court, and in children facing removal from their home jurisdiction. I have significant experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following clinical treatment, and the emotional impact of medical negligence and missed diagnoses.
