Project(s): COVID-19 Peer Support Project

Citizens EIE

Geoffrey is supporting the COVID-19 Peer Support Project aimed at co-designing and testing the effectiveness of a peer-to-peer intervention to help adolescents cope with moral distress during COVID-19, and the BeGOOD Citizens Early Intervention Ethics project.

Geoffrey holds a BA in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences from The University of Cambridge and an MSc in Behaviour Change from University College London. Through use of the Behaviour Change Wheel, his MSc research project systematically explored the barriers and facilitators of adolescent engagement with online counselling and identified strategies to optimise engagement. This project was completed in partnership with The Mix, a UK-based charity that provides essential mental health support to under 25s.

Geoffrey’s research interests lie within the field of adolescent mental health and well-being interventions.
