Summary

 

Summary

I am an honorary postdoctoral researcher in the Centre for Psychiatry. My primary academic interests are in patient experience and safety.  In my doctoral research, I examined micro and meso level processes that contribute to negative outcomes of psychotherapy using primarily qualitative research methods. Over the last twelve years, I have contributed to various mixed methods trials investigating a range of complex interventions and worked closely with diverse and vulnerable client groups. I currently co-supervise PhD and BSc projects at the College.
