I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist who has worked in a range of academic and clinical settings. These include universities, and NHS community mental health, child and family psychology, and physical health settings. Currently my teaching, research and clinical practice spans a number of areas including:
- Assessment, formulation and intervention in mental health presentations including eating disorders.
- Approaches to understanding the impact of, and supporting individuals with physical health conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, venous thrombo-embolism, and spinal cord injury.
A large part of my work and research involves engagement with external agencies and I am currently engaged in projects with the NHS, pharma and third sector organisations. Having previously led the MSc Clinical Psychology and Mental Health as programme director (2018-2022), I now act as Admissions Tutor for the programme. I currently teach final year and postgraduate students, and also supervise postgraduate research.
My role as a clinical academic combines work as Senior Lecturer in Clinical and Health Psychology at the university and as a Specialist Practitioner Clinical Psychologist with a local NHS health board.
