About

My career so far has been spent working predominantly with young people affected by mental health difficulties; this has been in statutory inpatient care, statutory local authority provision and in the community and voluntary sector.  When I was a full-time PhD student I was involved in teaching both online and in person. 

I am a qualified Counsellor, NLP Practitioner and Equine Assisted Psychotherapist. I am also in the final stage of a PhD at the University of Nottingham looking at young men and their perspectives of health and a healthy body within the Schools of Health Sciences and Education.

Research interests

My research interests centre on young men and health. I am currently working on my PhD looking at young men and their perspectives of health and a healthy body. I am also working on an AHRC project at the University of Nottingham around young men and anorexia.
