Research Interests

My teaching and research are in the field of counselling and counsellor education. I explore emerging counsellor identities, pedagogy of counsellor education, and social constructionist and post-structural approaches to counselling, including Solution-focused Brief Therapy. I take a critical approach to research with an interest in the relationship between material, social, and cultural realities and individual experience and agency. I draw on feminist, qualitative, arts based and critical posthumanist research methodologies.

Prior to working at the University of Canterbury I have worked as a Psychologist and Counsellor, in New Zealand and the UK, mainly with children and families experiencing domestic violence, trauma, and the effects of the Canterbury earthquake sequence.
