I am currently a Lecturer and Researcher within the field of Psychology and have a background working with both adult and youth offenders with addiction and mental health issues. I have also worked with children with Social Emotional and Mental Health difficulties.
To date my expertise resides in identifying treatment pathways and interventions for “at risk” populations. I have a specialist interest in the identification and treatment of Alexithymia having conducted research within Specialist Educational Provisions and Rehabilitation Clinics in Staffordshire. Prior to becoming a Lecturer in Psychology my previous employment included working within Children Centres, Prisons, and Community Mental Health and Addiction Support teams.
