Personal profile


Originally from Ireland, I moved to Edinburgh to complete my Masters in Social Work at The University of Edinburgh in 2008. Following this I worked primarily in criminal justice social work settings, initially as part of the integrated Caledonian System for addressing domestic abuse in Scotland, where I worked on a voluntary basis with children experiencing domestic abuse, and then as a criminal justice social worker within a local authority team. My practice experience has influenced my research interests in core social work practice skills, communication and relationship building. I completed my PhD in 2019 looking specifically at how social workers build effective working realtionships with men convicted of sexual offences. 

I am broadly interested in issues related to social work practice skills, justice and identity, with particular interests in criminal justice social work, sexual offending, domestic abuse and interactions in social work.
