Import to contacts


I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2011 and continue to work in the NHS while working as a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology at the University of Glasgow. The combination of clinical and academic work has allowed me to maintain productive research collaborations with NHS services and clinicians.

Research interests

My main clinical and research interests are in drug and alcohol addictions, especially in women, particularly those who are mothers. I also have an interest in grief and loss, lived experience of contact with NHS services and in people who may be labeled as hard to engage. I have an interest in qualitative research. My interest in Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) allows me to amplify the voices and experiences of people from marginalised or under-researched groups which could result in service development and improved outcomes for patients.
