Research interests

I have quite an eclectic research interest which stems from having worked in several fields. For example, my PhD is centred on cognitive psychology however, prior to this I worked in the areas of psychiatry, general adult mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, child-protection, dementia and, visual blindness. My roles were either research-based or practitioner-based. As a practitioner, I worked as an NHS Psychological Therapist: practice was research-led.
