- Senior Lecturer: Department of Sport
I accepted a teaching role at Doncaster College/University Centre way back in 2003. Since then I have worked in a number of lecturing and leadership positions. My current role within the University Centre is Senior Lecturer and Curriculum Leader for Higher Education within the Department of Sport here at the High Melton Campus.
I also work as an applied practitioner and accredited Sport and Exercise Scientist providing psychological support for a number of organisations and individuals. My main role as an applied practitioner is working in football as the Psychological Performance Coach for Barnsley Football club. Alongside this role in football I also have clients in rugby league, golf and work with both amateurs and international athletes.
My main research interests currently are counselling psychology in football and the impact of psychology in football.
I am currently undertaking a PhD in Performance Psychology
