Teaching Posts

I began teaching and supervising law undergraduates when I was undertaking my PhD and most recently I have been teaching and supervising trainees on the Clinical Psychology Doctoral course at the University of Oxford. I have taught students at undergraduate, masters and doctoral level in lectures, small-group workshops and provided supervision via one-to-one and group sessions. I’ve also provided methodological advice and training to academic, NHS and “lay” researchers.
