Module 3 Lead - IAPT/PWP Programme (CPPT-MED School)
I joined the UEA Academic team in April 2019 as an Associate Tutor, becoming a Clinical Lecturer in January 2020. I completed my Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) training at the University of Exeter whilst working for the Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust in Colchester and then worked as a qualified PWP for the Norfolk & Suffolk Foundation Trust in Norwich full-time for 4 years. I completed my PWP Supervisor training at the University of Essex and have experience of providing case management supervision and co-facilitating clinical skills supervision training to other PWPs, as well as providing support for trainee PWPs. I am currently working towards the MA in Higher Education Practice.
