Athro Meddygaeth Ymddygiadol
I am an applied Psychologist specialising in Psychological management for patients with long-term conditions (particularly complex and multiple conditions).
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 10 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 was 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.
