Current research interests:
- One of my main interests is clinical supervision. I have been involved with the development of measures of supervisor competence (SAGE) and the supervisory relationship (S-SRQ). SAGE has been used for the training of clinical supervisors around the world, including within the NHS and the NES (NHS Education for Scotland). The S-SRQ has also been widely disseminated and translated into a number of different languages.
- I am also interested in the areas of: men and mental health, sport and exercise, psychometrics, third sector and community endeavours, and research in relation to clinical work with children, young people and their families.

- 'The lived experience of adults with Anagen syndrome (loose or short); an interpretative phenomenological analysis' (Dani Osler)
