PhD supervision

Therapeutic communities; service user involvement; disability in a social context, particularly visual impairment.

Research Interests

I am a qualitative social scientist with a disciplinary background in social policy and medical sociology. My research interests lie broadly in the areas of disability and mental health, with more specific interests in: 

  • Visual and other sensory impairments;
  • Therapeutic communities;
  • Self-harm;
  • Service user involvement.

Current Teaching

I am part of the team delivering research teaching to trainees on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme.

Additional Information

I joined the DClinPsy programme team in June 2011, having previously worked for eight years as a researcher in the Health and Community Care Research Unit at the University of Liverpool. Prior to this I undertook my doctoral research at the University of Bristol's School for Policy Studies, where I looked at service user involvement in mental health policy making through the lens of Jürgen Habermas's theory of communicative action. Habermas's focus on intersubjectivity as a concept of value to social theory led me to an interest in psychological theories of intersubjectivity, and particularly in the relationship between intersubjectivity and individual subjectivity.

Before moving into academia I spent several years working in a policy role in the voluntary social care sector.
