I'm an Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology. I have a BA from Cambridge, an MSc from LSE and a PhD in Clinical Psychology from UCLA. I've had the pleasure of working at UCL for over 25 years, initially as a part-time lecturer combined with being an NHS clinical psychologist, and then later as a full time academic. I retired in 2017, but am continuing my research in an honorary capacity.

Research Summary

My research examines the process and outcome of psychological help and support across a range of populations and settings, both professional and non-professional. For example, I've studied peer support, mutual support groups, online support groups, doctor-patient communication and client-therapist interaction. I've also published articles and chapters on the methodology of research in clinical psychology and related areas, and am an author of Research Methods in Clinical Psychology (with Nancy Pistrang and Robert Elliott).
