Previously, as an Associate Lecturer, Harry combined both his academic background and practitioner expertise. They lectured in reflective practice, communication skills, diversity in practice, transgender awareness and queering the curriculum.
They themselves draw on their lived experience and are very passionate about creating transformative spaces in training. These spaces are centred on our commonalities and lived experiences where people can ask questions, get things wrong, explore new ideas and try out new narratives.
