About me

Dr Miles Thompson is an Associate Professor in Psychology at UWE Bristol. He is also a clinical psychologist, registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He worked full time in the NHS at the Bath Centre for Pain Services from 2005 until 2011. Prior to working at UWE, he worked as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University.

His clinical background and clinical research is based around Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and other "contextual" approaches such as Mindfulness, especially as they apply to Chronic Pain. His other strong research interests are in psychology and its relationship to social, global and environmental justice (arguably, this interest is encompassed by the term "community psychology").

Miles is the lead of the Psychological Sciences Research Group (PSRG) and the lead of the Promoting Psychological Health (PPH) theme. He leads / has recently led a first year undergraduate module in Interpersonal Psychology and the placement module on the Masters in Health Psychology.

Internally at UWE, Miles has active research collaborations with colleagues in all faculties, Specifically: ACE (Arts Creative Industries and Education), FBL (Faculty of Business and Law), and FET (Faculty of Environment and Technology). As well as collaborations in his faculty home: HAS (Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences). Externally, Miles has collaborations with individuals and organisations inside and outside of university settings. He is currently co-investigator on an active research grant funded by University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

Miles welcomes contact from people interested in his work, or working with him.
