Chair of Trustees
I am a Responsible Business Consultant with many years’ experience in Corporate Responsibility and a background in HR, marketing and communications. My company Flourish CSR provides specialist advice to high street retailers, global fashion brands and NGOs on a range of issues including sustainability and climate action, ethical sourcing, diversity and inclusion, animal welfare and charity partnerships.
I am a psychotherapist and was one of the first to work with clients with TFSW when the charity was created. After many years I chose to step back from the frontline and become a trustee instead. Since then I’ve had several different roles: fundraising initiatives, organising conferences, marketing and proofreading leaflets.
I worked as an inner-city GP with a remarkably diverse population for many years. I became interested in the physical, psychological, and social issues affecting the health of people I was working with who had fled war, persecution, or oppression. I became a trustee of TFSW after retiring from clinical work.
