Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a senior research clinical psychologist. I joined Strathclyde in February 2023 as Professor of Clinical Psychology via the Global Talent Attraction Programme. 

I work on a funded (NIHR, Yorkshire Cancer Research) research programme in clinical health psychology – mostly evaluating the effectiveness of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for improving quality of life in physical and mental health conditions within clinical trials

My main research areas are:

1) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as applied to chronic diseases and mental health

2) Psychological therapies for people living with neurological conditions 

I was previously Academic Director/Deputy Director of Northern Ireland’s Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, leading the taught curriculum of the three-year professional doctorate at Queen's University Belfast. I am external examiner for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programmes at the University of Liverpool and the University of Glasgow. I am a HCPC-registered clinical psychologist (DClinPsychol).

I am Associate Editor of the British Journal of Health Psychology and Chair of the Mental Health sub-committee for the International Standards of Care for FSH Muscular Dystrophy. Previously I held a personal fellowship at the University of Leeds (2015-2018), where I remain an honorary research fellow. My PhD was completed at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London (2013), and my Clinical Psychology Doctorate at the University of Edinburgh (2015).
