Margaret Evison is a clinical psychologist and the author of Death of A Soldier: A Mother's Story
Margaret is a consultant clinical psychologist, and latterly she led a team supporting cancer patients in a large London Hospital Trust. Her interest in how people are and why, across different communities, has underpinned that career. Born in Sydney she then had a childhood of travel, including schooling in Mumbai. The close family of four children formed an important world for her, as they moved every few years. After a degree at Melbourne University she finally settled in South London.
Margaret is a member of the Dimbleby Cancer Care Advisory Board and a trustee of the Mark Evison Foundation. Margaret has recently been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Oxford Brookes University ‘in recognition of inspiring work in establishing and leading the Mark Evison Foundation supporting young people in their personal development’. Death of a Soldier is her first non-academic writing.
