My name is Chris Arridge. I split my time between working as a Space Scientist and Software Engineer at Lancaster University, and as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in private practice. I have particular interests and mental health and neurodiversity across my counselling practice, academia and society-at-large. As a teacher and educator I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I also give public talks, write, and dabble in illustration and graphic design, and spend a lot of my personal and professional life programming computers.
