I have worked in the NHS and academic psychology teaching and researching “Personality Disorders” and related aspects such as impulsive behaviours and self-harm; offending; attachment styles and mentalization; treatment outcomes and staff training since early 1990s, including ten years in Clinical Psychology Training. Having trained more recently in coaching, I am also interested in contributing to the evidence base in coaching psychology. I have taught and examined both quantitative and qualitative methodologies.

Doing much of my "growing up" as a psychologist and researcher in a Democratic Therapeutic Community, I am committed to the involvement of those with "lived experience" in Clinical Training, research and service development.
