Profile summary

Professional biography

My PhD project is a Collaborative Doctoral Award between the Open University and Beyond Words. Using creative and visual narrative methods, I aim to explore the health and wellbeing benefits of (wordless) book clubs for people with learning disabilities.

Previously, I completed a BA (English) and an MA (Person-Centred Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice) at The University of Nottingham.

Outside of my studies, I volunteer with young adults as a person-centred counsellor and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Research interests

My research interests include learning disabilities in the UK; collaborative and restorative storytelling; creative practice; multimodal narratives; reading for pleasure; the discourse of therapy and improving accessibility in health services.
