    I have a particular interest in the area of Self-Harm and Personality Disorders, in particular the assessment, management and ongoing treatment.


    In addition to this I provide specialist consultancy on an ongoing basis in the field of CBT for self-harm and personality disorders for the Belfast Trusts Self-Harm Team. As part of this work I provide training to students specifically Queens's students on placement and to community and statutory bodies. Also I have been asked to provide psychotherapy to the Health services Psychosexual team this is to be confirmed by the University. Lastly in I am currently writing a book for Open University Press in the field of low intensity working, this work is due to be submitted.
