Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am Diploma Courses Leader within the Counselling Unit (School of Psychological Sciences & Health) and coordinator of the Strathclyde Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Clinic, which is led by Professor Robert Elliott. We offer free person-centred and experiential counselling  and psychotherapy to members of the public who are willing to take part in our research protocol.

I am currently undertaking PhD studies: Measuring patterns of change in client congruence: A longitudunal and cross-sectional investigation. 

My wider research interests include the outcome and process of person-centred and experiential counselling and psychotherapy, the impact of PCE training on students, clients' experiences of therapy and developing case study research methods. I am also conducting an ongoing longitudinal study to map the development of the person-centred approach in Scotland (datasets collected in 2006 and 2015).
