Qualifications

I finished my PhD in Psychology at the University of Plymouth and PenCLAHRC in August 2018. Prior to that I graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2014 with first class honors BSc (Hons) Psychology and also worked there as a research assistant on social psychology and social cognitive psycho physics projects. 
I am a trained practitioner in Motivational Interviewing and Functional Imagery Training. 
My main area of interest is improving health and quality of life by applying cognitive psychology to the development and advancement of novel health interventions, especially in sustained weight management, increased physical activity and work-related stress.
