About

Overview

Catherine is a Chartered Psychologist specialising in neurological illness who joined City, University of London in 2012. She previously worked at King's College London and the University of Manchester.

Catherine obtained her BSc (Hons) Psychology and PhD Psychology at the University of Manchester.

She then conducted post-doctoral work at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London before joining City, University of London as a Lecturer in Health Psychology in 2012. Her research interests are centred on neurological illness, focusing on neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease and conditions which might create functional neurological illness as measured by cognition with particular interests in coping, quality of life and well-being.

Research

Research overview

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. Currently projects include exploring the nature of illness uncertainty in the carers of patients with Parkinson's disease.

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.

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.

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.
