    Personal profile


    I am a nationally and internationally recognised expert in training in psychology, through my work with the British Psychological Society and the European Federation of Psychologists Associations. I have consulted for a range of organisations across the world, both public and private sector, on training, continuing professional development, critical thinking, and leadership.

    I founded Crisis and Resilience Expertise (CaRE), a collaborative home for researchers internationally who are working on projects relating to COVID-19 and any aspect of human crisis such as terrorism, natural disaster and economic crashes. I direct the group of almost 35 individuals across over 25 projects across psychology, health, law and business.

    I have previously been President of the Institute of Health Promotion and Education, a BPS Trustee, a member of the Registration Authority of The Science Council, a board member of the Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register, and have been Chair of various boards and committees including the BPS DHP Training Committee, the Membership and Standards Board, the Board of Examiners in Health Psychology and the Qualifications Standards Committee. I served on the EFPA European Awarding Committee for the EuroPsy certification.

    I am the author of 12 books for students, health professionals and the public, most recently Health Psychology in Clinical Practice.
