I am a counsellor/psychotherapist primarily trained in the dialogue between person-centred and psychodynamic approach, and a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I obtained my Professional Doctorate in Counselling and Psychotherapy from The University of Edinburgh in 2019, and joined DMU as a Lecturer in Psychology in 2020.
I am interested in the aesthetics of qualitative research and the process of the inquiry itself. My research often challenges the often coherent, well-structured and 'together' traditional scholarly voice and engages the creativity, reflexivity, and the self of the researcher/practitioner. I aim at producing research writing that research beyond acadmia.
My doctoral thesis uses writing as a method of inquiry to explore the experience of narrative incoherence. Currently, I am researching into the experience of sibling abortion under China's One-Child Policy.
