I have a background in researching and tutoring English Literature. I then completed an MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London. This led to my interest in researching people’s stories of recovery from illness. I recently completed a PhD with Durham University’s ‘Hearing the Voice’ research team, investigating the emotional aspects of adults’ experiences of hearing voices. I conducted qualitative interviews and focus groups with service-users, and ran training for mental health professionals. I am a Collaborator with Durham University’s ‘Hearing the Voice’ research project, as well as an Individual Partner in the Collaborating Centre of Values-based Practice in Health and Social Care, St Catherine’s College, Oxford University, and the Network Lead of the Educational Voice-hearing Network.
