About Me

I offer doctoral research supervision (secondary) and master’s Research Supervision (primary)

I am currently able to take 1-2 supervisees (supervisees may require evening meeting flexibility)

I have experience supervising undergraduate and master’s student research projects. I currently co-supervise a PhD employed through my own company.

I have published a range of journal articles and a book chapter, all relating to the integration of counselling psychology and neuroscience/neuropsychology.

Following a degree in mechanical engineering (2007) and subsequent work in construction and project management, I changed career, completing an MSc Psychology (2012) and DCounsPsych at University of Manchester (2016).

Within Psychology, I have worked as a lecturer, director of my own company (private practice and organisational consultancy) and currently work in the NHS. I have also been service lead for a neurological charity’s counselling service. My client work covers a wide range of adult mental health and neuropsychology presentations.

Research Interests

Though my research has often involved discussions around neuroscience, I am interested in a wide range of areas relating to human existence and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in areas relating to mind/brain/body discussion, sustainability, socio/economic/political and sports related research. My most recent research has related to the role of projection (psychodynamic theory) in spectating media personas (including parasocial relationships) and I am currently exploring research relating to Zen Buddhism and wellbeing/therapy. I believe each of these topics have connections with existential underpinnings and enjoy integrating wellbeing with a range of philosophical schools.

Methodology

My primary experience is with qualitative methods, particularly Thematic Analysis and IPA.
