She has a private, psychoanalytic practice in Brighton. After taking early retirement in 1990 she worked at the University of Sussex until 2004 with Dr. Kevin Lucas from Brighton University. Their research examined the impact of gender on teenage cigarette smoking and together they produced two volumes. The first is Smoking in Adolescence: Images and Identities (1998) Routledge, with J.
