The Age of Spectacular Death


I authored a chapter called 'If Death is the Spectacle, Big Tech is the Lens'. A fascinating collection of perspectives on the visibility of death in society. Academic but accessible.

The Oxford Handbook of Cyberpsychology


Several colleagues at the University of Wolverhampton were major drivers behind this text. Looks at a wide range of ways in which psychology and the digital world meet. I wrote a chapter on social media and mourning.

Curing the Dread of Death:: Theory, Research and Practice


A scholarly text out of Australia. I co-authored a chapter with Edith Steffen on 'death anxiety'.

Continuing Bonds in Bereavement: New Directions for Research and Practice


Grief isn't just something that you 'get over' or 'move beyond' - our relationships with the dead continue in various ways. A new take on the classic, perspective-changing 'Continuing Bonds' book.

The SAGE Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy


A massive text, a popular go-to for counselling and psychotherapy trainees in the UK and beyond. I wrote a chapter on interacting with the media - not something every practitioner does, but it's important to know what's involved if you do!

Counselling Psychology - A textbook for study and practice

D Murphy


One for trainees in counselling psychology, particularly in the UK. I co-wrote a chapter with Isabel Henton on doing research.

Counselling Psychology


Another one for counselling psychology trainees, to which I contributed a chapter on existential psychotherapy.

The Trainee Handbook: A Guide for Counselling & Psychotherapy Trainees


This text is a perennial favourite of counselling and psychotherapy trainees. My chapter was about life after training and developing a professional career.

The Handbook of Counselling Psychology


I was one of a crew of five editors for this core text for the counselling psychology profession in the UK, and also authored a couple of chapters on research. Don't miss the accompanying website, with audio and video resources.

The Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Handbook


An awesome, clearly written, incredibly helpful book for trainees (or anyone) doing research projects. It was primarily authored by counselling psychologists and is a solid guide. I contributed a chapter on generating ideas for research/a research question.
