My name is Aidan Harvey-Craig and for the past 15 years I have worked with teenagers and young adults in schools across England and Africa as a psychology teacher, a lecturer in the psychology of education, a leader of student wellbeing and a school counsellor.


Now I'm writing a book about student wellbeing with the lovely people at  Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

I've worked as an assistant forensic  psychologist,  running Anger Management and Cognitive Skills courses for Category A offenders in a maximum security prison.


I went on to gain an MEd in the psychology of education and  have presented regularly at the conference for the Association of Teachers of Psychology and at the conference for the Division of Forensic Psychology. My previous publications range from research into the profiling of hostage incidents in HM prison service to examining ways to foster independence in teenage student learning.

Right now, I live and work in Malawi with my wife and my two teenage daughters.

But more importantly... real claim to fame is when a band I was in - Russian Flying Squirrel - made an appearance on the  BBC programme The UK's Best Part-Time Band. For the record, comedian Rhod Gilbert described our music as: 'Like being licked by God'.
