I began the task of developing African and Caribbean approaches to mental health work in 1987 when employed as a counsellor working with young people in London Charity. It was there I became aware of the need for developing specific services to cater the needs of African and Caribbean communities.
Since 1990 I have worked developing African centred services in the voluntary sector, NHS and in local authorities. In 1993 I co-founded the Black Therapy Association which provided the first Diploma training in Black Therapy. I was the founder and Co-Chair of Safoa, the National African and Caribbean Mental Health Network. I am currently a board member of the UK Chapter of The Association Of Black Psychologists,
I have lectured widely in the UK, Europe and USA on delivering therapy and Mental health services to Black communities.
