Personal profile

Biography

My research enquires into the phenomenology of marginal and special life experiences especially in relation to the talking therapies. I use experience-near interviewing methods to facilitate people to communicate their lived experience and personal meanings. My current research explores issues around culture and ethnocentricity in theory and practice of the talking cure. I am interested in supervising research using a phenomenological approach to explore any aspect of marginal or different experience including race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality.

Research Interests

My main research interest is Phenomenological Psychology, in particular the use of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) to explore personal identity and experience. I am also interested in social perception and interpersonal communication.

I am currently working on Chinese psychology and psychotherapy following a six month sabbatical in Beijing based at Peking University.
