Research summary

My clinical and research interests focus on adolescents experiencing eating disorders and young people with impulsive behaviours.   I am particularly interested in the interaction with these difficulties and adolescent’s early attachment experiences, interpersonal relationships and ability to regulate emotions.  This leads to an interest in associated treatment modalities, particularly Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Mentalization based approaches.
