“I always look at things that I enjoy. For me that is coming to work, seeing patients and seeing how people get better. That always outweighs any other frustrations or challenges that I've had.”

“Mental health is an amazing discipline to work in. There's not a day that goes by where I don't see someone recover from what's often been a very difficult journey for them. They've often really suffered in dark places and there's nothing better than travelling alongside somebody and seeing them start to recover. It's the biggest buzz in the world.”
