Introduction
My main focus now is on the further development of a Schema Therapy model for use with eating disorders; and developing and evaluating a social enterprise approach to delivering healthcare to people with mental health problems (www.mentalhealthcarecollective.org.uk) Over the last 10 years I have focused on working with people with severe Anorexia Nervosa in community care, evaluating outcomes form the ANITT model of intensive community care, and developing with colleagues an adapted model of Schema Therapy (ST) for Anorexia Nervosa.

Approximately 25% of people with bulimia nervosa (BN) who undertake therapy are treated in groups.

Chronic pain is an important cause of suffering, disability and loss of productivity. Despite this, little research has been done to quantify the problem in the community. This is partly due to the lack of an agreed definition of chronic pain. To address this we undertook a postal survey to test and validate a series of definitions of chronic pain...

Our aim is to use a theory for understanding eating disorders to generate stories in a graphic novel form, to build understanding among those experiencing eating and body-image problems and the public in general. We intend to use digital media as a platform for dissemination and a means of combating the negative influence that some aspects of social media can have on eating and body-image problems.
