Dave Smithson


I am the Services Manager at Anxiety UK, responsible for all aspects of service delivery for the user-led charity, providing access to therapy services for people with a range of anxiety, stress and anxiety-based depression.

In addition to my professional knowledge of dealing with mental health conditions I have experience as a school Governor and charity Trustee, both roles where acting as a critical friend to the senior leadership teams were a core requirement.

My role also includes overseeing the clinical governance and quality assurance of all therapy provision, monitoring evaluation outcomes and reviewing feedback from clients on their user experience.

As a service user led organisation I have also represented the charity speaking on behalf of its members on various forums and working groups including a global review of outcome data for anxiety and depression, the APPT standards set out by the RCPsych and the current review of choice in IAPT services delivered by NHS England.
