Staff Profile

Alexandros Georgiadis

PhD Student

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCLAHRC in May 2012 as a PhD student working on a project titled ‘Offenders with common mental health problems and their care: an examination of offenders’ and practitioners’ perspectives in a mixed methods study’. My project aims to uncover offenders’ and practitioners’ perceptions of offenders’ common mental health problems and care, understand how they influence one another as well as relate to diagnostic manual definitions of mental illness (DSM-IV/ICD-10). The project was granted ethical approval on February 2013 and data collection started on April 2013. I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology in 2005 and in 2006 I completed an MSc in Psychology and Counselling. Here, I contributed to the development of an online student counselling service and worked as an online counsellor. It was through my counselling work in military psychiatric hospitals that I became aware and interested in health inequalities and the illness experience. In 2011, I completed a Diploma in Counselling and went on to work in NHS, Employee Assistance Programs (UK) and within a psychiatric hospital substance misuse clinic (Greece).
