Research Interests

My research interests are focused on how living a more balanced lifestyle can reduce the stress and pressures of our modern lifestyles and enhance individual, family, community and social resilience and wellbeing. I am also interested in the cultures of paid work; professionalisation and professional identity in health and social care and problem based learning.
