Training and Facilitation


I have extensive experience of designing and facilitating successful group events such as team effectiveness days, staff engagement workshops and multi-agency fora. 




I have completed and published both qualitative and quantitative research, supervised Clinical Doctoral research programmes and served as an Examiner for the Oxford University Clinical Psychology Doctoral Training Course. I can offer research supervision and consultancy on a wide range of health care issues as well as a range of organisational issues such as designing effective work-place surveys and focus groups to gain staff insight.


My research publications are listed with other published work here.

Although my availability for developing teaching and training projects is limited, I have successfully delivered somewhere in the region of 150 clinical and interpersonal skills-related training events covering a range of subjects and competencies. Examples include: Counselling Skills in the Workplace (for employees of any background); Introduction to Mindfulness; Service Development and Innovation; Clinical Consultation; Grief and Adjustment to Disability; Working Effectively in Complex Organisations. I have also taught extensively on the Oxford and, more recently, Leicester Clinical Psychology Doctoral training programmes.


I have also facilitated many different team events and meetings. The majority of these have focused on team effectiveness, relationships and wellbeing.  I have also worked with groups to address internal conflicts, manage change, reviewing values, and develop creativity and innovation.  This facilitation experience has included working with public, private and third sector organisations.
