Biography

Research Interests

Collaboration and primary care; Interdisciplinary Education; Motivational Interviewing in healthcare settings ; Positive Psychology (Mindfulness meditation / Prevention programmes). 

My research interest lies within the general area of human interaction and relationships, focusing specifically on understanding the processes of collaboration among healthcare professional groups. I am particularly interested in how groups construct their identities and culture.  This interest has grown out of my experience as a counselling psychologist working for over a decade within a healthcare group, now a primary care team. Not only does this professional involvement influence my teaching; but it provides a fertile ground for research.   It is widely acknowledged at a policy level, both nationally (National Health Strategy 2001; Primary Care Strategy 2001; Vision for Change 2006) and internationally (World health Report 2001), that primary care should be the cornerstone of modern health services, with the primary care team its central location. It is therefore crucial that there is sound research on the processes of collaboration in those teams to inform practice and to develop further theoretical knowledge on group processes.

Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests


My teaching interests lie at the intersection between social, health, and positive psychology. In particular I am interested in human relationships with a particular focus on: the experience of collaborating, understanding "self and identity", mindfulness and health care change (motivational interviewing). 

Current teaching areas include: Social perspectives on psychology; Wellness Coaching; Psychology for healthcare and communication skills (Interdisciplinary Module taught with colleagues from School of Nursing and Midwifery); Counselling skills and Psychological skills for Guidance Counsellors.
