    Personal profile


    I am Associate Head for Student Experience within the school of Psychological, Social and Behavioural Sciences at Coventry University. I lead on initiatives, and support academic staff, in the delivery of high quality educational experiences for all our students.
    I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society and I am also accredited by the Association for Psychological Therapies as a Solution Focused Therapist. I am currently undertaking L5 Coaching Professional Apprenticeship (ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring).
    I have a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Forensic Psychology, and a PhD was in offender rehabilitation. Since 2009 I have been working with Probation Trusts, CICs and Charities that work with male and female perpetrators of violence, by creating solution-focused programmes and by training and clinically supervising programme facilitators.

    Areas of Expertise:

    Offender rehabilitation, solution-focused therapy, coaching and mentoring, qualitative research methods, psychology in the criminal justice system.

    Research Interests

    Offender rehabilitation, strengths-based approaches to the treatment of offenders, Criminal Justice Processes

    Vision Statement

    I see that in the future, the most effective offender rehabilitation programmes will prove to be those that adopt strengths-based approaches, that encourage and empower facilitators to work therapeutically with individuals, including those deemed unmotivated to change.
