I'm a senior clinical psychologist in NHS Children’s services (CAMHS), and in 2018 was appointed to manage the new and innovative Arts and Mental Health Innovation programme, part of the wider transformation of children's services, the national THRIVE Programme. This blog began to help me record and share my 2017 Churchill Travelling Fellowship, following a research role at Arts for Health, Manchester Metropolitan University. I have worked in several university psychology research departments including the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research at Lancaster University, notable for its service user involvement, and on the Dementia & Imagination research programme.
