As Staff Tutor in the School of Psychology, I manage the Associate Lecturer team based in the North of England, who also tutor the OU’s international students. I have taught Psychology for the OU since 2005.
I am a Practitioner Psychologist (Educational) registered with the Health Care Professions Council, and a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. Previous roles include working as a Higher Psychologist for HM Prison Service, and as an Educational Psychologist for LEA and CAMHS teams in the North of England.
I am interested in applying psychology in my work and to action research; in particular I enjoy using narrative techniques, personal construct psychology and systemic approaches. I am also currently involved in a charity based in the North of England which supports children and adults with neurodiverse learning abilities.
