  • After graduating from University College London in 1969 in Psychology, I completed my PhD in 1973 with Hans Eysenck at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. I was a Lecturer in the Psychology Department at Queen's University Belfast before coming to the Social Sciences Department at Loughborough University in 1977 until retiring in 2013. Currently I am currently Emeritus Professor in Psychological Health.

    I have been Joint Editor (1995-2000) and Associate Editor (1993-1995, 2000-2001) of the British Journal of Medical Psychology and its successor Psychology and Psychotherapy (2001-2010) as well as Associate Editor of the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships (2004-2009). I have been on the Editorial Boards of seven other journals. I was Chair of the Books and Special Projects Group of The British Psychological Society (1998-2001) as well as a member of the group (1995-1998). I have also been a member of the BPS Journals Committee (1995-2000).

    My research interests and publications include such topics as mental health, personality, personal relationships, organizational commitment, psychotherapy and counselling. I have authored or co-authored over 82 papers in peer-reviewed journals and over 36 first or revised editions of books.
