I am a lecturer in Mental Health based at Hamilton Campus, UWS. I teach undergraduate nursing students and supervise post graduate students.  My areas of interest for research include mental health, the use of Information and Communication technology, specifically mobile technology and their effects upon recovery.   I am an expert in qualitative research methodologies, systematic reviewing and evidence synthesis.  I am also an expert member for NHS West of Scotland’s Research Ethics Service.  I have considerable experience in secondary and specialist mental health services as a registered mental health nurse.  These areas include Over 65 functional assessment Inpatients, Adult acute Inpatients, Substance misuse services and Community Mental Health Services.  I am a trained counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice.  I would like to collaborate on research that relates to mental health, higher education, evidence synthesis using both qualitative / quantitative or mixed-methods approaches.
