Trauma-informed Interviewing in a Marine Setting (TIMS®) 

In collaboration with a clinical psychologist, Dr Rachel Glynn-Williams, I have developed a comprehensive witness interview model that combines investigative interviewing best practice with a trauma-informed approach to mitigate the effects of stress and trauma and to provide wellbeing support to witnesses who have been involved in a critical incident at sea. It can be delivered in person or remotely. 
TIMS® is part of a suite of trauma-informed services I offer through Recall Recover Limited. For more information, go to
