About the Expert

Simon qualified as a chartered clinical psychologist in 2002 getting his Doctorate at the University of Newcastle, where he had previously studied his undergraduate in the mid ‘90’s.

In addition to providing psychological services in the NHS in North Tyneside, he worked as a mental health officer with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), delivering psychological trauma interventions in a conflict zone in Columbia, and an earthquake zone in Pakistan. He also acted as an advisor for MSF head office in Amsterdam.

He has published widely on PTSD, HIV and drug dependence and completed Expert Witness training with the BPS and Bond Solon.
