PhD in Psychology, University of Derby

MSc Health Psychology, University of Derby

BSc (Hons) Psychology, University of Leicester



I am a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society. My research interests include pain, treatment and prevention of obesity in children and adults, compensatory health beliefs, the impact of mindfulness and stress reduction, psychological factors implicated in healthy lifestyle behaviours, public health and behaviour change interventions. I am a Research Fellow at Warwick Medical School and a lecturer in psychology at the University of Derby.

Fun fact:

I deliver mindfulness to postgraduate medical students as part of their Personal and Professional Development module and I am terrible at Zumba!
