I have worked in the field of mental health services for over 25 years.  For many of those years, I have been in post as a researcher/educator (including at University Level) specialising in the relationship between spirituality/religion and mental health and well-being, and have disseminated many findings to the wider community in the Uk.  In addition, I have worked for 22 years in the spiritual and pastoral care service of a very busy London hospital (Mental Health Services), and have been both team leader and joint team leader (currently) of its Chaplaincy Department for 8 years.

Works with: The interface between spirituality/religion and mental health – psychology and psychiatry.  I have published various articles and book chapters (including peer reviewed) regarding this specialism.
