My past work experiences have included working within the NHS primary care system providing psychological services at Step 3 and Step 4 level of care for patients. I have also worked with international students at the University of Manchester Counselling Service where I have created a specialised service providing counselling, workshops, and individualised support meeting the unique adaptation challenges and needs of this at-risk client group.

I have also provided mentorship to troubled youth, and empowered communities in Kenya through psychological support, capacity development, and advocacy for adults and young people facing issues of HIV/AIDS, drug abuse, unemployment, and poverty.
