Lecturer in Mental Health

Biography

I am a mental health nurse with a wide range of clinical experience across different health and social care settings and in services for children, young people and adults. More recently I have worked in national roles focused on leading educational workforce development. Most of my clinical work has focused on psychotherapeutic interventions, predominantly psychodynamic and group analytical approaches. My experiences providing training, supervision and consultancy for professionals working with the effects of child abuse and neglect sparked an interest in educational research, broadly described as investigating how pedagogical interventions might best support health and social care professionals to accomplish difficult work. I returned to higher education after a break of twenty years or so, and think I might stay this time.
