Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Lecturer in psychology and cross-cultural mental health at the University of Brighton. I am specialised in psychotherapeutic approaches to treating dissociative disorders. 


My current research students are:

- Satoko Imamura (M. A. Psychology program): 'A cross-cultural study to investigate the relationship between self-esteem, life satisfaction and family harmony in people who grew up in Japan OR the United Kingdom'.

- Emily Read (M. A. Psychology program): 'A study to investigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on university students’ mental health in England.'


My current research focuses on biculturality and mental health issues relating to Colombia. I am also interested in the impact of the ongoing Colombian armed conflict in citizens, residents and journalists living and / or working in Colombia.
