Research Background

I completed my BSc Psychology degree at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2012. For my dissertation, I conducted a quantitative study into factors which predict appraisals of resilience. During my time at Manchester University, I also volunteered as a research assistant on a project concerning staff-client relationships in mental health services. After graduating I spent time as a support worker, working with a wide range of client groups including those with learning disabilities, mental health and substance misuse difficulties. In these roles I provided emotional support and encouragement and I helped individuals to achieve greater independence within the community. I then completed the MRes Health and Well-Being course at Lancaster University, funded by the ESRC.

Current Projects

I am currently a first year PhD student at Lancaster University. This forms part of an ESRC-funded programme, in collaboration with Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The subject area to be investigated concerns the therapeutic alliance within the context of computerised interventions, supervised by Dr Fiona Lobban and Professor Steve Jones.
