I supervise professional doctorate researchers working on qualitiative studies in a variety of topics related to counselling psychology. I have a particular interest in supporting researchers to develop novel/innovative qualitative research methods, and/or to use non-traditional qualitative data sources. I am also interested in supervising investigations into lived experiences of individuals (and their families and friends) recovering from, or living with, severe mental illness.
