Personal profile

Biography

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. Macmillan Cancer Support has licensed the HOPE Programme for cancer survivors and now delivers it in the UK. The National Cancer Survivorship Initiative vision document (20023) cites the HOPE Programme as an exemplar of good practice.

Research Interests

Self-management, long-term conditions, health psychology, lifestyle interventions living with or affected by cancer, dementia, MS, mental health conditions and autism, chronic disease

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.
