Personal profile

Research interests

I have 22 years experience of working within child and adolescent mental health services as a mental health nurse and clinical nurse specialist. My work is influenced by consideration of the therapeutic milieu, family and wider systems, relational, creative, cognitive and behavioural therapies. I am curious as to what is happening at the intersections of children and young peoples lives and the contribution that this has towards a culture within which  good mental health,  emotional wellbeing and social justice are held as important.  Consequently, I am interetsed in research that uses a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods of enquiry to understand interactions between social mechanisms, expressions of mental health, resilience and social justice.
