In 2013 I was awarded a first class degree at the University of Plymouth in Applied Psychology. During my undergraduate degree I undertook a placement year as a research assistant within a cognitive neuropsychology research group. Following my degree I worked as a mental health recovery worker within the community. I worked at this organisation for two years and then I begun a masters in Social Work. During the masters I undertook placements within family services followed by a homeless hostel. I completed my masters with merit in 2017. I began my PhD in psychology in 2019 and I am due to complete in 2022.

I am currently conducting a PhD on the implementation of Functional Imagery Training into healthcare settings. Functional Imagery Training (FIT) draws upon the principles of Motivational Interviewing and Imagery to support individual towards reaching their personal goals. My current research project is looking at using FIT remotely in groups for weight loss. I am also working on a project looking at the barriers and facilitators of implementing new interventions into NHS and private practice.
