Current Post

Honorary Consultant Psychologist, Salford Royal Foundation Trust and Central Manchester Foundation Trust, UK.

Psychological management & self-management support in long-term conditions (particularly complex psoriasis).
Clinician training for patient self-management support.

Professional profile
Current studies:
1. Identification and Management of Psoriasis Associated Co morbidities (IMPACT)
2. Patient Reported Outcomes in Management of Psoriasis (PROMPT)
3. Psoriasis and specific co-morbidities (Psoriatic Arthritis and Psychology study; Eating & Mood in Psoriasis; Sleep, Mood & Psoriasis)
Over the last 25 years I have conducted translational research, applying psychology to inform and improve patient care. My focus is on the role of patient beliefs about long-term conditions and how this impacts on their mood and health behaviour through to interventions that enhance motivation for self-management. That research has been across long-term conditions and over the last 8 years has focussed on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I design and deliver psychological interventions for mood management and behaviour change in long-term conditions and train motivational interviewing skills to health care staff as part of their routine consultations.
I served as President of the UK Society for Behavioural Medicine until December 2016 and have served on two NICE clinical guideline development groups. I have over 100 peer review publications including four key reports on the development of NHS patient services. I lead or collaborate on NIHR, industry and patient charity partners with research awards totalling over £20M.
