Gill Allen

Director of Bromley Y

since Jan 2018

Prior to taking up this post I worked as a practitioner and leader in Croydon Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

I have worked for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust as a mental health trainer and for the Department of Health to develop Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) involving extensive work with schools and health.

In 2009, I completed an MA at the Tavistock: Consultation and the Organisation; Psychoanalytical Approaches.

An occupational Therapist with over 29 years’ experience in child and adolescent mental health, I am interested in developing and sharing practical, evidenced-informed approaches to promote mental health; whilst also working hard to drive collaboration and change.

When not working, I like to play tennis, attend spin classes and head out into the countryside for long walks to appreciate what nature has to offer.
