What is your job at Kingwood?
As a Clinical Psychologist I do a lot of listening and talking! I meet with people and listen to them and help them with difficult feelings and behaviour. I also meet with support staff, managers and parents to help them think about how best to help and support people with autism. I deliver training for all staff at Kingwood to help them understand autism and I make plans with Kate and other managers to help keep people with autism well.

I am a positive person and I like people. I think all people are really interesting and good. I am passionate about the environment and I enjoy cooking and making home-made natural beauty products. I am married and have three grown up sons.
