Introduction 

I am a Clinical Specialist Dietitian working in the NHS. Since 2003 I have held the position of Mental Health Dietetic Lead for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. I am a member of the All Wales CAMHS and Adult subgroup, which report to Welsh Assembly Government. I represent Dietetic in Wales on a number of forums. I lead for record keeping within Dietetics in the UHB.

I also work on a freelance sessional basis with Cardiff Student Support Centre, Counselling Services, University of Wales Cardiff. Here I undertake Clinical Specialist Dietetic input for Students and Staff presenting with Eating Disorders and other Nutrition related conditions. At Cardiff Metropolitan University, I am a guest lecturer presenting in the areas of Mental Health and Eating Disorders to Undergraduate and Postgraduate Dietetic students.

I have provided specialist Dietetic input to Orbis Education and Care service since 2012. This is a private education and residential service for adults and children on the Autistic Spectrum with complex health and behavioural issues.

I provide specialist supervision to Junior Dietitians. 

Additionally, I undertake general Freelance Dietetic Work on a consultancy basis and my areas of special interest include counselling and behaviour change, obesity and weight management, eating disorders, elderly nutrition, mental health, nutrition education, and public health nutrition.

I accept instructions from both Claimant and Defendant Solicitors and Insurers. I have undergone training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to Expert Witnesses.
