Senior Lecturer

I joined the University in 2005 after over 20 years working in advice, guidance and counselling. I now work across a number of courses but primarily in Health and Social Care.

Teaching and supervision

I am currently Senior Lecturer for BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care and first year tutor. I have module leadership responsibility and teach on a first year Study Skills module, a second year Counselling module and a final year Placement module. I also supervise final year dissertation students. I have also taught students on Criminology, Social Work, Community and Youth and Childhood Studies courses.

Previous to this role, I was Programme Leader for Health and Social Care before that Programme Leader for the MA Career Guidance which included professional training. I still retain a strong interest in this area and use this experience to support students in preparing for the world of work.


My research interest includes how young people are influenced in making career and life choices and especially how this impacts on the aspirations of young people and adults.
Prior to joining the University in 2005, I worked in the field of advice, guidance and counselling for over 20 years both as a practitioner and manager. This involved working with young people and adults in a career guidance setting but also involved broader life choices too. I am interested in the multiple influences that affect these life choices and especially how these affect young people's aspirations.
I am a member of the Assessment Panel for the University's SUPA award scheme.
