"Andrea is an insightful, creative and innovative practitioner and trauma consultant. Her specialist understanding and application of depth psychology has been invaluable in support of joint endeavours to influence care experience related legislation and in aspects of my own clinical psychology work. She is unwaveringly supportive, professional, passionate, and extremely balanced. A real expert by experience."
