About me

Current role: Educational psychologist and academic tutor

HCPC number: PYL38555

I work as an Academic Tutor at Birmingham University and I work as an EP in London. I also trained in Nottingham and did placements across the East Midlands, so I am interested in the way that EP services operate differently depending on their location.

Mentoring to me, is about jointly arriving at new insights in a two-way learning process.

My doctoral research explored the way that black pupils experienced a sense of belonging in predominantly white schools. I am also interested in the philosophical stuff of psychology (espitemology/ontology). In particular I am interested in how marginalised voices and perspectives can enrich educational psychology research.
