Our team

Meet the people who provide our leadership, and find out more about their experience and passion for the work we do.

Duncan Pearse

Chief Executive Officer

My vision is for us to provide the very best, most appropriate, mental health support to the people who come to us for help. We have great foundations and will build on them to make sure this happens. I work closely with our board of trustees and senior management team to bring this vision to life.

Experience of mental illness in my own family means the expertise and dedication we have at Northpoint also has personal significance.

Adam Calvert

Chief Finance Officer

With my expertise and experience in financial services and accountancy, I look after all things finance for Northpoint. This includes modelling income and costs on potential new contracts, budgeting and management reporting. Being as cost-effective as we can allows us to deliver more high-quality services.

In my spare time I see clients as a psychotherapist, so I know the value of therapy and counselling.

Hazel Burleigh

Director of Adult Services

My background is in mental health, and I'm trained in TA psychotherapy.

Working at Northpoint means I can bring my management skills and therapy roots together, supporting our managers and practitioners to deliver services that are high quality and based on what we know works.

I'm also passionate about raising awareness around dyslexia and the menopause.

Helen McGlinchey

Director of Children and Young People Services

I've been with Northpoint since 2006 and have seen the organisation grow considerably. I think this is due to us focusing exclusively on mental health and developing innovative new services. I hold senior operational and strategic responsibility for all our Schools services, as well as being their clinical lead.

I really value how client-centred, responsive and supportive our staff are in their work with children, families and schools.

Mandy Bowers

Director of People and Culture

I'm responsible for all things people, making us a different place to work - different in a good way! I bring many years of experience in HR to Northpoint. Since joining, I have been blown away by the level of commitment and energy from everyone I meet.

I'm also a school governor and have seen first-hand how important children’s mental health is, especially since Covid-19.
