I am a Registered Health Psychologist (HCPC) and Psychotherapist (MBACP). My research interests lie in behaviour change, the processes of self-regulation, and public health issues that involve risk behaviour, including eating, exercise, sexual health and alcohol use. Along with professionals from a range of health-related disciplines, I have designed and delivered behaviour change interventions for a range of participants and patient groups in clinical and field settings; these interventions utilise psychologically-based strategies to promote behaviour change. I am particularly interested in the application and translation of the evidence-base to practice and am always keen to forge relationships with academics, educators and health professionals, across disciplines, to strengthen the links between research and practice.
