Kiki qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1993 from the South East Thames Training course.  Since then she has worked in Bath in a split post (adult and child) which involved establishing an in-patient pain-management course, as well as research on a DH project working with children with life-threatening illness.  She then worked in Huntingdon in a multidisciplinary family consultation centre doing generic and paediatric work on the children's ward and in Kings Lynn in a paediatric post.  Research interests are in health psychology, mainly in the area of paediatric illness.  She has worked in a clinical/research post at Addenbrooke’s Hospital with children with Disorders of Sex Development. She now works in the paediatric oncology department at NNUH.
