About Us

We are a group of academics and clinicians who for some years have been conducting research into sexuality. Our backgrounds are in psychiatry, anthropology, social science, geography and health services research. Our research has included psychotherapy research, oral history research, and systematic reviews of the evidence on the mental health of LGB people and the effectiveness of psychotherapy to help LGB people who are distressed.

We are associated with a number of London universities including University College London, Imperial College and St Georges Hospital Medical School.

He then spent four and half years at the Department of Mental Health Sciences at University College London (UCL) conducting two oral history studies. The first study investigated the experiences of people who underwent and also administered aversion therapy and the second explored how naturists managed their sexuality when naturist. Glenns' current post at Imperial College London also uses oral history methods to understand how people from different ethnic backgrounds integrate the idea of organ donation into their lives alongside their cultural and religious beliefs.

Glenn was instrumental in starting up the first qualitative research group at Imperial College and is also a member of the social and cultural group of the government task force on organ donation.
