Personal profile

Research Interests

My research is based on the relationship between nature experiences and mental health in a time of climate and ecological crisis, with a particular interest in how love, care, community and work impact on personal and ecological health. I am interested in Ecopsychology, Ecotherapy, Ecofeminism and nature based therapeutic practices. As a qualified counsellor and life coach, I am passionate about mental health and wellbeing. My aim as a research PhD student is to explore how nature based experiences are interpreted and how they support people maintaining health and wellbeing in a planetary emergency. I am also interested in deconstructing and critquing nature connection and nature therapies as safe and accessible therapeutic and medical practices and as possible interventions in an era often associated with mass environmental destruction and devastation. My work is also interested in the growing issues around mental health conditions and disorders that are emerging directly linked to climate and ecological fears and concerns. Other areas of interest are educational reform, neurodiversity, children's mental health, gender inequality and social justice.
