Biography 

Lyndsey qualified as a registered mental health nurse in 2008 and started working as a staff nurse and later, ward sister on the acute wards and PICU for Greater Manchester West Mental health NHS trust. During this time Lyndsey developed her interest in student learning and education and set up a student learning forum as a project that formed part of her therapeutic intervention’s degree. Given its success this enticed her to pursue a career in academia. Whilst still working clinically Lyndsey joined the University of Chester as a senior lecturer practitioner where she stayed part time until joining Salford University in September 2020. During her time at Chester Lyndsey was a senior lecturer and program lead and was successful in completing her PGCert, becoming a registered NMC teacher and a fellow of the HEA. Throughout her time as a lecturer practitioner and on completion of her Master’s degree Lyndsey worked as a CBT therapist in a category B prison, as a mental health advisor / CBT therapist at UCLan and as a senior nurse practitioner for North West Boroughs NHS foundation trust. Lyndsey remains in clinical practice with North West Ambulance service where she works as an urgent care practitioner in the clinical hub, conducting mental health telephone triage on a bank basis. Lyndsey is currently studying part time for a PhD in student mental health due to her desire to combine both interest of mental health and student experience.
