Dr Manya Merodoulaki PhD, MSc, MA, DipEd, BA

Lecturer

Summary

My professional "home" is psychology. I have worked in the NHS (mental health, physical health and staff support services) and have held a private practice offering psychological therapy, clinical supervision and consultancy. I am interested in the psychological impact of experiencing shame.

I have also held teaching positions in adult and tertiary education (Workers' Educational Association, Roehampton University, Keele University, University of Sheffield). In my MA in Psychology of Education dissertation I examined correlations in anxiety, locus of control and help-seeking behaviour in University students while in my MSc in Psychological Counselling I examined associations of early experiences with choosing a profession such as psychology, psychotherapy or counselling (on my academia page: https://sheffield.academia.edu/ManyaMerodoulaki)

My PhD explored experiences and meanings of clinical supervision in stroke care, using a combination of survey, observational and interview methods. Since May 2016, I have been convening the Yorkshire IPA [Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis] regional group, having used IPA for my PhD interviews. I am very interested in philosophy of science and the Aristotelian concept of phronesis which I believe is key to clinical practice. I am also interested in politics and in how we mis/use our power in our everyday living.
