Interested in working with me?
I am a Doctor of Psychology who also has a Masters with Commendation and has trained in systematic reviews at Oxford University. As a researcher, I have broad interests, as can be seen by my array of academic publications and magazine articles. I have also been involved in a number of government initiatives, working alongside the Department of Health and Macmillan Cancer Support. I am a third year BACP-accredited trainee counsellor, and utilise the person-centred philosophy throughout my work with students.
While completing my own PhD and while training at Oxford University, I developed key skills in both quantitative and qualitative research, as well as theory development, questionnaire design, psychometrics, and the use of statistical programmes such as SPSS. I am dedicated to continued professional development.
I am a 31-year old self-confessed work addict. I love all aspects of my work, from ideas formation, research, writing, and sharing with others. I enjoy the fact that my research skills equip me to work in all areas and disciplines. I am particularly motivated towards making scientific knowledge accessible to everyone. Furthermore, I love a challenge, hence my eclectic topic expertise (from writing about cats to writing about statistics!).
In my spare time, I love nothing more than spending time with my partner of 11-years and three adorable cats. We live in the countryside with a long open garden, which we walk in daily. I also enjoy spending time alone in cafes, drinking a Cappuccino as I watch the world go by. I am creative in all that I do.
