Areas of interest and expertise
I am currently the Field Lead for Pre-Registration Mental Health Nursing at the University of Bradford and the Programme Lead for Psychological Therapies for Post-Registration Professionals.

I am currently pursuing a doctorate in ethnographic research around narratives of people with 'severe mental health difficulties' - the topic area is currently in progress.

I am also currently involved in qualitative research into experiences of barriers to accessing support and care for people with mental health difficulties as part of an Urban Living Programme Bid.

I am a member of the International Advisory Group on the BHIRCH project (Better Health in Care Homes) currently exploring how care homes can promote better health for people with dementia.

I've recently published a book on Recovering from Psychosis: Empirical Evidence and Lived Experience with Routledge. http://www.routledge.com/catalogs/nursing_midwifery_and_health1/1/9/

I've also co-written a chapter in Torn and Greasley's Psychology for Nurses on 'Altered Mental States' For Polity Press.

I'm now working on some writing projects around Stigma and Othering, and Critical Mental Health Nursing: Exploring Recovery that are in their early stages and welcome potential collaborators from all backgrounds.

My key interests are developing critical recovery oriented approaches, narrative competency, and psychological therapies.

The book takes as its starting point the crisis of healthcare in the UK: impossible health targets managed through command and control management and a stomach-churning rise in racism, whistleblowing and victimisation in the NHS. The use of nationally set productivity targets combined with austerity cuts have increasingly put clinical best-practice into direct conflict with funding. Health targets have become politically controlled, and performance has become a cynical exercise in ticking…
