Brief Description of Work: I am a researcher and writer who promotes the understanding of mental health issues and well-being. I completed a PhD with Durham University’s ‘Hearing the Voice’ research team in 2018, investigating the emotional aspects of adults’ experiences of hearing voices. I conducted qualitative interviews and focus groups with service-users, and ran training for mental health professionals. I regularly present at conferences. I am an Individual Partner in the Collaborating Centre, as well as a Collaborator with Durham University’s ‘Hearing the Voice’ project. With Assistant Professor Mark Hopfenbeck, I am co-editing various ‘Practical Handbooks for Mental Health’ (publisher: PCCS Books). ‘The practical handbook of hearing voices’ will be published in September. ‘The practical handbook of dementia’ will be published at some point next year. I organise and facilitate Development Workshops at St Catherine’s College to promote these ‘practical handbooks’.
