I am a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology. I have a BA from Yale and a PhD in Clinical Psychology from UCLA. I've been at UCL for over 20 years, initially working as a part-time lecturer combined with working part-time as a NHS clinical psychologist. I'm now employed by UCL, with an honorary NHS contract.
My research examines the communication of psychological help and support across a range of populations and settings, both professional and non-professional, for example, peer support, self-help groups, online support groups, doctor-patient communication and client-therapist interaction. Together with Prof Chris Barker, with whom I've had a longstanding collaboration, I run the Psychological Helping and Support Research Group. I have published articles and chapters on the methodology of research in clinical psychology and related areas, particularly on qualitative methods, and am an author of Research Methods in Clinical Psychology (with Chris Barker and Robert Elliott).
Most of my teaching and research supervision is on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy). In 2013 I received a Provost’s Teaching Award, jointly with Prof Chris Barker.
