British Psychological Society Doctor MedyWith an interest in human performance and motivation, Helen started out as a sport and exercise psychologist and continues a connection to sport in areas such as image and performance enhancing drugs, athlete mental health, and child athlete welfare. However, her applied work and interests have extended beyond this domain, particularly into areas such health behaviour change ā€“ focusing on weight management, smoking cessation, problem drinking, addictions and substance use and abuse.

Helen has worked in private, public, and third sector services, and currently works part-time in a drug and alcohol service in London as well as running a private practice. She has been a visiting lecturer at Chichester and Greenwich Universities, and regularly presents at academic conferences.
