    Personal profile


    Andy is a Professor of Health Psychology and a registered health psychologist. He has been involved in developing, delivering and evaluating health behaviour coaching and self-management programmes for patients and carers programmes for nearly 20 years. He has led a programme of work developing the Help to Overcome Problems Effectively (HOPE) health coaching and self-management support programme for people living with and beyond cancer, MS, dementia, HIV/AIDS and mental health problems.

    Vision Statement

    My vision is everyone having access to evidenced based self-management support resources. I aim to educate, inform, inspire and make a difference in the world by improving others’ quality of life and confidence to achieve their goals. I take a person centred approach to the development, delivery and evaluation of innovative group, web-based and app based resources, all of which are based on scientific research and knowledge. While my passion is research I never lose sight that analysis must lead to action if it is to be useful and meaningful to people living with and affected by a long-term health condition.
