Personal profile

PhD Project

The objective of my PhD project is to develop and evaluate a mindfulness based intervention for those living with chronic pelvic pain due to adenomyosis and endoemtriosis. 

The first part of this project is a systematic review that evaluates the effective of non-surgical, non-pharmacological interventions designed to improve the quality of life of those living with adenomyosis and endometriosis. 

The second part of this project is a photovoice study, which aims to assess the psychological needs and coping strategies of women living with adenomyosis and/or endoemtriosis.

The third part will involve stakeholders in a co-creation workshop aiming to address the facilitators and barriers in the use of an online health psychologys intervention for those livign with adenomyosis and endoemtriosis. 

Finally, a health psychology intervention will be developed and evaulated.
