Craig qualified as a mental health nurse in 2009 after 3 years at Northampton University, during which time he also worked as a health care assistant at the General hospital. 

Since qualifying as a nurse, he has worked in a variety of settings, including admissions, secure services, home treatment, psychiatric intensive care (PICU) and mental health rehabilitation.

Working in mental health rehabilitation particularly, has helped Craig to understand the greater human story; how peoples' experiences and traumas have shaped their life. He considers it a privilege to help people gently challenge the limiting beliefs they hold about themselves, and the world, and to step onto a more hopeful path into the future. Something Craig hopes to continue doing on this next stage of his journey with Green Light Trust.

Craig feels fortunate to have taken some career breaks to travel abroad which have expanded his own horizons as well as given him skills that he has brought back to his work. 

In Thailand he volunteered at a school in the rainforest for children with learning difficulties, with an open youth club at weekends. Craig assisted the teacher, delivered English classes, organised games/sports, art and recycling projects and helped the children with agricultural work on the grounds.
