I qualified as a medical practitioner in 1988 after undertaking an intercalated BSc. Soon after, I started my journey in the field of Psychiatry and specifically that of Substance Misuse. My NHS career spanned 30 years and for 10 years I advised Welsh Government on Policy and Strategy in relation to Substance Misuse. I am now semi-retired and have started on a new chapter in my life. I have been an ambassador for a UK natural skincare brand called Tropic Skincare since 2016 and love to champion this ethical, sustainable brand. In 2020, I launched my own sustainable company called Grounds For Good. Our aim is to divert used coffee grounds from going to landfill and to repurpose them into a number of innovative products for wellbeing, home and lifestyle. The business follows a social enterprise model and profits from sales goes towards The Wallich, a National Homeless Charity.
|I have worked with THE most disadvantaged individuals in society. Those with mental ill health, substance misuse and homelessness. I gave a lot of myself but received so much more back. I am a true believer that we all have the potential to make changes to our behaviour and life trajectory- with the right support and mindset. Our physical and mental health are so closely intertwined and we need to nurture both. In latter years, I have become deeply concerned about what we are doing to our planet and yet nature is such a powerful healer to us. My new business venture is the culmination of the above. Good for you; Good for your planet; Good for your community. By supporting Grounds For Good, you are helping us to achieve these goals.|
