About me

I am an experienced practitioner health psychologist, chartered psychologist and senior academic, skilled in clinical applications of health psychology, research, teaching, supervision and practice.

I have very successfully led the British Psychological Society accredited and highly commended Masters in Health Psychology programme here at UWE, Bristol since 2013, which I now co-lead with Dr. Heidi Williamson.  Other leadership roles include: Psychology Alumni Lead (with Dr. Nancy Zook) and Postgraduate Study Representative for HAS on the PG Working Group.

I lead and teach on the module, Health, Stress and Cognition on the MSc Health Psychology and contribute across undergraduate, masters and doctoral modules in health psychology, research methods, appearance psychology and professional skills. I supervise doctoral level trainees in health psychology and counselling psychology and regularly act as an internal and external examiner for PGR student research.

I am a full member of the BPS Division of Health Psychology, past committee member and act as an assessor to the QHP training route. I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist/Health Psychologist with the HCPC.

I am research active, conducting and supervising research and practice in health psychology, patient experiences, appearance psychology and therapeutic interventions (particularly in the arts and health field). I co-lead a special interest group with Dr Nicola Holt, 'Developing Research in Arts and Well-being (DRAW)' within the Psychological Sciences Research Group at UWE, which is my developing field of interest. 

I have also been a member of the Centre for Appearance Research (since 2006) and my research focuses on applying health psychology in understanding appearance altering conditions. I co-authored a book in this area published by Wiley-Blackwell and continue to publish peer reviewed empirical research with the team in CAR.
