The relationship between mind and body
I’m a psychologist specialising in the effects of stress on physical and mental health and I provide a therapeutic approach to behaviour change. My background in psychological research and evidence-based practice can support you to make important changes in your life and work through underlying issues that are holding you back. Working with the mind and the body, we can formulate a treatment plan for issues such as burnout, low self-esteem and weight-management as well as managing and adjusting to a long-term and chronic health condition.
Why Am I Called Mind-body?
Modern psychological research and age-old evidenced-based practices demonstrate that health is a whole-body experience, so I include practices that work with the body and the mind. Eastern traditions see the mind and body as one entity and it’s known as mind-body. I use yoga as one of the body-focused approaches to work with the nervous system and its impact on overall health.
Qualifications and training route
Training routes in psychology can differ from person to person and depending on the discipline area, there are different requirements. I hold graduate basis for chartered membership with the British Psychological Society which is a prerequisite for my doctoral studies in Health Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University. This means that although I am currently a “Psychologist”, I am also classed as a “Health Psychologist in Training” until I have completed my professional doctorate by the end of 2021. Once complete, I am eligable for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as a “Chartered Health Psychologist”.
