Zipporah and I have had mutual patients for over 20 years.

During this time I have been struck by how assiduously caring, assertively and hugely helpful and astute she has been in the treatment of these patients.

I have much appreciated also the uncanny understanding she has of the role of medication in the treatment of co-morbid and very challenging conditions.

She has had high recognition of the community and voluntary work that she has been much accomplished in.

Those of us in the mental health professions know the quiet and also great achievements of hers in her psychological, professional work.
