Personal profile

Research interests

I have been employed at the University of Brighton as an occupational therapy tutor for 20 years.  During this time I have had the opportunity to develop from a clinical practitioner working in mental health into a confident and competent occupational therapy educator. 

In 2020 I successfully completed my part-time Doctoral research journey in recognition of a programme of work entitled 'Exploring the potential of embroidering as a therapeutic intervention in occupational therapy.  My research interests encompass the use of everyday occupations within a transitional process  to influence health and well-being.
