I am Co-Director of the London Centre for Applied Psychology - providing training for mental health professionals. I have written various articles with my Co-Director, Graham Johnston. We also comment in the media on prominent events.
Here's an article we wrote on the scale of mental health problems in the U.K. and why therapy needs to be far more than a safe-space.
We wrote the guide to 'attachment' for Psyche magazine. And spoke about attachment and boundaries on The Meaningful Life podcast with Andrew G. Marshall.
Last year, I edited a journal on early attachment and forensic mental health - along with my colleagues Dr Bennett and Dr Grimshaw.
I also took part in the recent roundtable discussion with the Health and Social Care Committee Mental Health Expert Panel. You can read the final report here and see the Government's response here.
