Dr Cousley is widely known in the UK and multiple other countries as an expert in orthodontic skeletal anchorage on the basis of his clinical innovations, publications and lecturing.

In 2015, a commentator described him in the British Dental Journal as being 'in the vanguard of this (orthodontic) revolution'.

Dr Cousley was a consultant orthodontist in the UK hospital service (at Peterborough City Hospital) from 2001 to 2017, during which time he managed a department and its dramatic transition from a unexceptional clinical facility to one of the most innovative, efficient and clinically productive departments in the UK. Consequently, he is one of the few consultants to have received a national Clinical Excellence Award, in 2011. He left the NHS consultant service in order to focus his engeries on patient-focussed services, clinical efficieny and the integration of rapidly evolving technologies (3D scanning, and 3D printing of orthodontic appliances / surgical wafers).

Dr Cousley has published over 38 peer reviewed papers and a textbook: 'the Orthodontic Mini Implanr Clinical Handbook' in 2013 (in both English and Spanish). He has been an invited lecturer in over 10 countries, including lecturing at the London WFO International Orthodontic Conference in 2015, on the treatment of anterior openbits using mini-implant anchored molar intrusion. He probably has the largest consecutively treated cohort of such cases worldwide and has developed a clinical protocol for both adult and adolescent cases with hyperdivergent growth problems.

Dr Cousley has been an associate editor for the Journal of Orthodontics, an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons (England) membership Orthodontics, and an honorary 'Kep Opinion Leader' for Dentsply-GAC Ltd. His other interests include orthognathic planning and treatment efficiency, and the applications of digital technology. Since 2013 he has used 3D virtual model manipulation to produce 3D printed surgical wafers for both single jaw and bimaxillary osteotomies (indepent of CBCT).
