​​​​​​​I am a doctoral researcher and a practicing Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist.

I am interested in how creative forms of dialogue and written expression are being used, consciously or unconsciously, to capture experience and develop new meanings within the context of 21st century living.


The relationship between psychotherapy and fiction
This project explores the relationship between contemporary fiction and psychotherapeutic practice, using the philosophy of Paul Ricœur as a touchstone.
