“Since graduating with an MSc in Health Psychology at Coventry University, I have recently joined Staffordshire University on the Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology. I am working as a Trainee Health Psychologist, based primarily on a Paediatric Burns Unit. I support young burn victims and their families through recovery and I will also be undertaking clinical work with adults with diabetes and chronic pain. This opportunity has provided me with the chance to apply my knowledge of Health Psychology models and theories in a clinical area, allowing me to grow and develop as a Trainee Health Psychologist. During the next two years I will be working on a number of projects including psychological interventions, research and teaching. I have also been very fortunate to have continued my work with Coventry University and I look forward to carrying out some research with Liz Sparkes in the new year, as well as delivering some teaching sessions to current MSc students later this academic year.”

We wish Anjulie enjoyment and success in her stage two training and we’re looking forward to her visiting us on the programme at Coventry.

Defining mindfulness

‘Mindfulness’ seems to be everywhere at the moment, though ironically this doesn’t necessarily mean it is widely practised, even by those of us who’d like to embrace it.

Our colleague Liz Sparks recently shared ten things she feels everyone should know about mindfulness at The Huffington Post Lifestyle Blog.

Students on our MSc Health Psychology course have the opportunity to learn about the theory behind mindfulness-based interventions in healthcare, as well as practical techniques.  They also have a chance to critically evaluate mindfulness-based interventions and explore the evidence for their efficacy.
