I have previously set up and managed a Birmingham-wide alcohol counselling service as well as programme, project-managed and commissioned in the areas of communities, community development, community and service-user engagement, training, communications and strategy within Sandwell’s, statutory drug and alcohol action team and the Council’s Public health department.

I work with both individuals and couples.
