About

I am a Principal Lecturer on the BA/BSc Programme in Education. I previously worked as a senior educational psychologist and was an associate tutor and lecturer at the Institute of Education, University of London. I taught on the doctorate training programme for educational psychologists. I completed my PhD in Organisational Psychology at Birkbeck College, University of London in 2008.

Qualifications

MSc Educational Psychology,  

PhD Organisational Psychology

Research interests

My  research interests include:

  • Group Consultation with Teachers: A psychodynamic and process consultation approach (Farouk , 2004).  This approach has been widely adopted by educational psychologists in England.
  • Teachers and Teaching:  In particular teaching as work and the relationship between emotions and cognition in teaching.
  • Psychological Narrative Research: The personal narrative and identities of adolescents who have been excluded from school and attend a Pupil Referral Unit. I am currently engaged in a research project, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, which examines the relationship between troubled and excluded adolescents' personal narratives and their ability to engage with education.  For further details please visit Personal Narratives and Student Achievement on the Nuffield Foundation website.

I specialise in phenomenological and narrative psychological research.  In my work I have applied Thematic Analysis, Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, and most recently narrative psychological research methods.
