I am a clinical psychologist who has worked in the public health services in Ireland for many years, mostly in services for children or adults who have experienced sexual abuse. I have served on the Boards of Crime Victims Helpline, the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland and One in Four. I am a past president of the Psychological Society of Ireland and currently Chair of the European Federation of Psychologists' Associations (EFPA) Specialist European Awarding Committee for psychologists specialising in psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in professional training and have had the opportunity to work on training programmes for clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists, social care workers and psychotherapists. I am currently a Board member of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).
