About

Background

Catherine obtained her BSc (Hons) Psychology and PhD Psychology at the University of Manchester. Her PhD work focused on illness perceptions and help-seeking behaviour in people with subjective memory complaints. She then conducted post-doctoral work at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London before joining City University London as a Lecturer in Health Psychology in 2012. Her main area of work has been illness beliefs in neurodegenerative diseases, with particular interests in coping, quality of life and well-being.

Research

Research Interests

1) Beliefs about health and illness
The beliefs both patients and carers hold about chronic illness and how these can influence a range of outcomes including mood, quality of life and help-seeking behaviour. Recent projects include exploring the nature of illness uncertainty in the carers of patients with Parkinson’s disease.

2) Coping with illness
The strategies patients use to cope with neurodegenerative conditions and factors which influence coping style. Currently collaborating with colleagues at Bangor University to explore resilience in Parkinson’s disease.

3) Cognitive impairment
The impact of cognitive impairment on a range of outcomes including coping behaviours and well-being. Currently collaborating with colleagues in Health Services Research on a study investigating cognitive impairment following chemotherapy in colorectal cancer.

4) Quality of life
Identifying clinical and psychosocial variables which affect quality of life in both Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Recently begun collaborating on a project with cardiologists at St George’s, University of London researching quality of life after aortic valve replacement.

5) Help-seeking behaviour
Exploring barriers and facilitators to help-seeking for health problems including Parkinson's disease and dementia. Currently designing an online intervention to increase help-seeking for non-motor symptoms in people with Parkinson's disease.
