I have lectured within the occupational therapy division since 1992, and had particular involvement in the interprofessional modules shared with physiotherapy students. My research focuses, in particular, on the meanings of creative occupations for people living with physical ill-health, mental health problems or the adversities associated with ageing, and their role in maintaining identity and well-being. I have particular interest in qualitative research methods, particularly Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Three projects on the meanings of making art for older people, and people living with ill-health, have been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and I have written several chapters and papers on this subject. I am also engaged in researching the benefits of socially inclusive art-making and dance projects in the Surrey area.
