I completed a BSc in Psychology in 2010 at Royal Holloway, University of London. I then completed the MSc Health Psychology course here at the University of Southampton. I am now currently in my final year of the Stage 2 PhD Health Psychology Professional Practice course.

In addition to this, I am working part-time on a large-scale project that is investigating how “non-specific effects” (i.e. the therapeutic relationship, patient and practitioner beliefs, and the treatment environment) affect the outcome of treatments for low back pain (MOCAM project).




Research interests

I am interested in the psychological impact of female chronic pelvic pain (CPP) conditions including vulvodynia. I am also interested in the relationship between CPP conditions and sexual functioning and satisfaction. As part of my PhD, I am developing a new measure that aims to assess the impact of CPP in key life areas. These include emotional wellbeing, occupational functioning, relationship satisfaction, and sexual functioning.

PhD supervisors: Professor Cynthia Graham, Dr Christina Liossi
