Profile Summary

Gary joined the University of Salford in January 2017 after a long and successful career in the NHS as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (Qualified in 2002), Psychological Therapist and more recently Advanced Practitioner in Personality Disorder. 

Gary has a unique and varied clinical career in mental health nursing which has followed new service initiatives in line with the modernisation of mental health services. He has worked in forensic medium secure units, mental health rehabilitation, crisis resolution and home treatment, early intervention in psychosis teams, psychological therapy services at both primary / secondary care levels and personality disorder services. 

Throughout his clinical career Gary has continued to develop his academic expertise, completing a BSc (Hons) in the psychosocial management of psychosis (COPE) and MSc in advanced practice interventions in mental health (COPE) both at the University of Manchester.  

Gary is a BABCP accredited cognitive behavioural psycho-therapist and has been accredited for 7 yrs. He has a special interest in the psychological treatment of a variety of complex mental health presentations including psychosis, obsessive compulsive disorder and personality disorder (including self-injury).  In 2010 Gary was recruited as an advanced practitioner in personality disorder (NHS band 8a) and strategically led the development of a multi-agency personality disorder strategy that was the first of its kind in the UK.  This strategy received national recognition in 2011 when Gary awarded the national ‘Nursing Times Award in Mental Health’.

In 2013 he was awarded a prestigious fulltime NIHR funded Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (Award of £208,233),  which he complete at the University of Manchester under the Supervision of Professor Karina Lovell (University of Manchester),  Professor John Baker (University of Leeds) and Dr Tommy Dickinson (Kings College London).  Gary’s PhD is in the final stages of write up.  The research is entitled ‘The development of an acceptable and feasible psychological therapy for people with traits of personality disorder in primary care IAPT services’. 

Gary currently holds the position of Joint Secretary for the British and Irish Group for the Study of Personality Disorder (BIGSPD) and has a special interest in personality disorder in primary care. Gary is particularly interested in health service research, qualitative research and framework analysis.  He has extensive experience of supporting user involvement and working in co-production with patients both in NHS services and in research.     He also has an interest in executive coaching and supported the development of senior leaders in his previous NHS trust in the development of their coaching skills.
