I am the Subject Coordinator for the MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice
I am interested in the psychology of coaching and in particular the relevance of psychotherapy and counselling in coaching. I am interested in mental health. I have a particular interest in Q methodology and in the interactive process between coach and client. I am interested in discursive, social constructionist and critical perspectives in coaching.
My research contributes to the professional practice of coaching and mentoring in a wide range of contexts.
