I have worked within psychiatry for the past 35 years after training for my RMN and RNLD in Leicester. I moved to Norfolk after training and worked at the Q.E.Hospital and as a CPN. I retired 2 years ago and having trained in Reflexology whilst still working, I now practice this at various day centres and support groups.

After the birth of my first son I had a serious mental health illness and have been an ex service user. I joined a local choir 15 years ago which has been great for my personal wellbeing, so when I was asked if I would become Chair for SYHO West which I have always admired, I definitely wanted to give it a go. I have recommended it to people in the past and have seen the benefits and support they have received from joining, and know myself how great having a jolly good sing is.
