I am an Emeritus 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 25 years, initially working as a part-time lecturer combined with working part-time as an NHS clinical psychologist, and later as a full-time academic. I retired in 2017, but continue to do some research and writing.

Research Summary

My research examines psychological help and support across a range of populations and settings. I've been interested in the process and outcome of professionally-delivered psychological interventions (in particular clients' experiences of such interventions), as well as non-professional support, such as peer support, befriending and mutual support groups. I have had a long-standing collaboration with Prof Chris Barker, with whom I have published articles and chapters on the methodology of research in clinical psychology and related areas, particularly on qualitative methods. I am an author of Research Methods in Clinical Psychology (with Chris Barker and Robert Elliott).

Teaching Summary

Most of my teaching and research supervision has been on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy). In 2013 I received a Provost’s Teaching Award, jointly with Prof Chris Barker.
