School of Sport, Health and Social Sciences
I have a number of years teaching experience as an associate lecturer across a range of teaching units including health, fitness and personal training as well as exercise psychology. I am currently unit leader for introduction to exercise psychology (level 4) and exercise psychology (behaviour change) (level 5). As part of this role I deliver the scheme of work through lead lectures and associated seminars and am responsible for assessment of these units. I plan to pursue a PHD in the area of exercise psychology with a keen interest in integrative behaviour change models concerning the initiation and maintenance of Physical Activity to otherwise sedentary populations. With a background in physiotherapy, I would also be interested in examining the role of psychology and behaviour change strategies in the initiation and adherence to exercise/rehabilitation in clinical populations.
