A brief introduction

As Operations Director, Steven’s role is quite varied. As well as directing non-clinical activities at the Loughborough clinic, Steven also oversees the activities of the growing Purple House network (systems, development, marketing, finance, website etc.).

The road to Purple House was indirect. Steven graduated from Oxford (Geography), qualified as a teacher some time later, and then completed a Master’s degree in Urban Conservation! Consequently, many of Steven’s role-specific skills are self-acquired.

Steven loves working at Purple House, and is proud to have developed a company (together with Dr Katie Morris) that practices what it preaches – operating with integrity, and high standards  – but with empathy at its core.

Outside of work, Steven enjoys going to the gym, listening to podcasts, reading and following the continuing misfortunes of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. However, Steven enjoys being a dad to his two young children more than anything else.

The Psychologist at Purple House suggested various interventions for our son which were implemented at home and at school. Following these changes, there has been a miraculous turnaround in his well-being. I can’t thank Purple House enough – our lives have been transformed!

Parent of young child

The Psychologist at Purple House was amazing. I felt safe with her from the very first session. She was supportive and professional and with her help I have been able to begin the journey back to truly living my life. She has changed my life in a very real way and I’m so proud of myself for making it as far as I did with her help. Thank you!
