I graduated from the Open University with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology in 2008 and went on to complete an MSc in Psychological Research Methods at the University of Exeter (2010). I completed a PhD at the University of Exeter (2013) entitled “‘Does feeling understood matter? The effects of validating and invalidating interactions”. This work explored the effects of understanding and non-understanding communication in the context of chronic pain consultations, particularly focusing on the potential placebo and nocebo effects of communication.
I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Southampton from 2014-2015 focusing on qualitative research, digital interventions and placebo effects in the context of chronic pain. I then completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Exeter from 2015-2018, focusing on Orthorexia Nervosa (an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating) for my research thesis. After working in the NHS in the Looked After Children Psychology Service, I joined Bournemouth University as a Lecturer in Psychology in 2018.
I am interested in research related to mental health within health/mental health settings, specifically the patient-provider interaction, placebo effects, working with childhood trauma and disordered eating. My recent research has focused on the lived experience of Orthorexia Nervosa and clean eating. I am also involved in projects looking at surgeon wellbeing.
