Professional biography

I’m a writer, therapist and activist-academic at the Open University specialising in sex, gender and relationships, as well as mental health, mindfulness and therapy. I co-edit the major journal, Psychology & Sexuality (Taylor & Francis) and am an internationally recognised expert on gender, sexual, and relationship diversity (GSRD), and therapy, with numerous academic books and papers on topics including bisexuality, non-monogamy, BDSM, non-binary gender, sex advice, sex and relationship therapy, and mindfulness. I’m a UKCP accredited therapist and I chair BiUK, the UK organisation for bisexual research & activism, through which I led on The Bisexuality Report which informs national policy and practice. I’m also involved in informing policy and practice on non-binary gender and other GSRD matters.

My ongoing project as a public engagement academic is the development of critical self-help literature, building on analyses of existing self-help. I’ve  written several such books myself now including Rewriting the Rules (Routledge, 2013), The Secrets of Enduring Love (Penguin RandomHouse, 2016, with Jacqui Gabb), and Enjoy sex (How, when and if you want to) (Icon Books, forthcoming 2017, with Justin Hancock). I also develop zines, websites, and audio-visual material along these lines. I regularly speaks on my areas of expertise in the media, including Radio 4’s Thinking Allowed programme, a popular TED talk, serialisation in The Daily Mail, and being featured in the Independent on Sunday Rainbow List. I’m also involved in running many public events on sexuality and relationships myself, including Critical Sexology. I regularly blog about sex and relationships on www.rewriting-the-rules.com. Twitter: @megjohnbarker.

 

Research interests

I have an established track record of internationally recognised research in the areas of sex, gender and relationships, and in counselling and psychotherapy. I am co-editor of the Taylor and Francis journal Psychology & Sexuality and am on the editorial board of journals including Sexual and Relationship Therapy, Sexualities, and Porn Studies. I have published numerous books, chapters, and academic papers including seminal edited collections on BDSM (Langdridge & Barker, 2007) and non-monogamous relationships (Barker & Langdridge, 2010) as well as an international handbook of the psychology gender and sexuality (Richards & Barker, 2015) and a forthcoming co-authored monograph on sex advice (Barker, Gill & Harvey, forthcoming 2016). I have also produced several well-regarded texts on counselling and psychotherapy, particularly in my specialist areas of mindfulness, sex therapy, and gender, sexual and relationship diversity (Barker, Vossler & Langdridge, 2010; Barker, 2013; Richards & Barker, 2013; Brotto & Barker, 2014).

I am actively involved in organising international and national conferences (e.g. Sexual Cultures, BiReCon, Non-Monogamies and Contemporary Intimacies) and have been an invited keynote speaker at many international conferences of academics and therapists (e.g. the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, the Canadian Psychological Association conference). 

Teaching interests

I chaired the core counselling module at the OU (D240) through production and five years of presentation. This received a faculty award and goes out to over 1000 student every year. I am also on the production team for level 2 and 3 psychology modules: DD210 and DD310. I have supervised undergraduate and masters dissertation students and have two current PhD students as well as four successful completions. I have acted as internal and external examiner for numerous PhD and MPhil students, and I supervise doctoral counselling psychology students at City University in London.

Impact and engagement

The main focus of my work is educating and informing the general public in the areas of sex, gender and relationships, and mental health, mindfulness and therapy. I have written – and am writing – a number of popular books on these topics, following the success of my Rewriting the Rules book, blog and TED talk. I have also appeared on TV and radio speaking on these issues, as well as in numerous newspaper, magazine and online articles. My complete list of media mentions is available at www.rewritingtherules.wordpress.com/reviewsreports.

External collaborations

I chair the organisation, BiUK, the UK organisation for bisexual research and activism. As part of this I organised the international BiReCon event in 2010 - which was the first ever international academic conference on bisexuality - along with regular national events. I led the writing of The Bisexuality Report (2012) which is the key document informing national policy and practice in this area, and I sit on the Chief Executive LGB&T committee in this capacity. I was listed in the Independent on Sunday Pink List (2013) and Rainbow List (2014) in recognition of my work in this area.

I co-organise the Critical Sexology network: a group bringing together practitioners, academics and activists working on sex and sexuality. I was part of the advisory group for the Wellcome exhibition on sexology. I co-organise Sense about Sex and Bad Sex Media Bingo, which inform media production of sex-related materials. I also write academically about the importance of public engagement and about the potentials of using comics and other creative methods in this area (Baker, de Lappe & Walters, 2015).

I am an accredited UKCP psychotherapist. Having previously worked in an NHS sexual and relationship therapy clinic for several years, I now work in the voluntary sector at London Friend seeing three to four clients each week. In addition to this I work in a coaching/supervision capacity with several heads of LGBT organisations and community leaders.

I provide online and offline CPD training to practitioners on matters relating to sexuality, gender and relationships, including Relate and Pink Therapy. I was the programme organiser for the conferences of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists for many years and provide continuing professional development in this area. I was on the BPS working party which produced guidelines for psychotherapists working with sexual and gender minorities and led the LGB&T partnership project producing guidelines on LGBT mental health for practitioners and community members. I’m a Pink Therapy associate and work closely on a number of their projects.
