I am a Consultant Psychiatrist (Eating Disorders and General Psychiatry) and a postgraduate artist. Following a Masters in Interdisciplinary Arts, I am currently engaged in a PhD on the Social Sculpture Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University. Here, I aim to use ‘connective aesthetics’ to mobilize imaginative processes to bring new insights for deepening human connectivity and compassion in clinical practice. I am also cultivating a Mindfulness-based practice for work in both fields. I am the lead for the Aesthetics in Mental Health Group launched at St Catherine’s College in June 2014 as an Advanced Studies Seminar.
