Welcome to my website, I'm glad you could make it! I'm a Psychology Researcher, Actor, Writer and Consultant. My doctoral research examines the effects of engaging with fictional worlds on empathy and behaviour. I also work as an actor and writer, teach, and work with applied arts and psychology in occupational settings. This takes me into a range of contexts, including schools and HE, social care, prison and mental health services. On this site you'll find info about research, presentations, publications, performances, blog and contat details. Thanks for dropping by.
