Personal profile

Research Interests

I am Joint Programme Director for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Queen's University in 1997 and graduated with a PhD from St Andrews University in 2005. I am registered as a clinical and a health psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council. My research interests are in the area of the development and evaluation of psychological (e.g. cognitive behaviour therapy)/behaviour change interventions to reduce the psychological sequelae of physical health conditions (cancer, chronic pain, asthma, IBD) as well as disease prevention through encouraging behaviour change (e.g. diet/oral hygiene).
