About Me

Books, tea, and nuts!

I’ve had psoriasis since childhood – for over thirty years – and I am also a Consultant Clinical Psychologist.

This is not another ‘Cure for Psoriasis’ website. Like you, I would love to discover a cure but in the mean time, I need to learn to live with my condition.

For many years I’ve worked with people living with chronic illness, from heart failure to cystic fibrosis, and I’ve learned a lot about how to cope with poor health and appearance differences.

I’ve created this blog to share my experience as a clinician as well as someone with psoriasis. I hope it will help you to cope too.
