Professional profile

I am a Registered Genetic Counsellor with a wide knowledge base gained from 15 years of clinical experience covering both general and cancer genetics. I initially worked at St. Mark’s Hospital in London specialising in bowel cancer genetics, working particularly closely with Cancer Research UK to support innovative research into bowel cancer. I have also worked in Cambridge and am now a Senior Genetic Counsellor with the All Wales Medical Genetics Service based in Cardiff, where I provide Genetic Counselling for a wide range of genetic conditions. I take an active role in training and mentoring Genetic Counsellors and am currently a member of the Genetic Counsellor Registration Board.

I provide genetic counselling for many areas in genetics. In particular I cover cancer genetics, cardiac genetics and preconception genetic testing.

I am currently working privately for GeneHealth UK. This is a private company providing genetic counselling across the UK. At GeneHealth UK we ensure patients are provided with all the information and full risk assessment when considering genetic testing. We also ensure that those who wish to go ahead with genetic testing are aware of the implications of these results and that the results are explained in full.
