My initial training was as a social anthropologist, and social policy scientist. I began my career working in the voluntary sector and subsequently worked for 16 years within central government as a policy scientist. From 2007-2015, I have been Research Fellow in ScHARR, with the HSR Mental Health Group. I am currently completing my doctoral research on workforce development within primary care mental health services.
My PhD thesis is a psycho-social ethnographic study of the experience of trainees within the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme in the NHS, entitled ‘professional identity and practice in the new psychotherapy workforce.’
I am interested in all aspects of the ‘psy’ professions, psychological therapy services, and strategies for improving public mental health.
I have particular interests in:
- Group and individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy
- Sociology and psychoanalysis of organizations
- Practice-based learning in mental health
- Democratic professionalism and user/ peer engagement
- Ethics and politics of care
- Psychosocial studies applied to healthcare settings
I am a founder member of the Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS). I am also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
