I am interested in research with an underlying value of social inclusion, equality and the reduction of stigma and informed by systemic and narrative therapeutic approaches. I have developed a programme of research within the field of parental mental health and family meaning-making and communication. I also have involvement in research that addresses discrimination and marginalization within training contexts, the wider profession of clinical psychology and within society.
