Lindsey has been a Higher Education Lecturer since 1996, teaching a variety of subjects from Sport and Exercise Psychology, Physical Education, and Public Health, during this time she has cultivated a keen interest in Behaviour Change and qualified as a Motivational Interviewing Trainer in 2012. After retraining and qualifying in Nutritional Therapy, she has transferred this interest to the clinical practice of nutrition, working on the MSc Nutritional Therapy. She now balances her time between lecturing, supervising research, and assessing in the student clinic and working as a practitioner. Lindsey continues to be intrigued by the complexity of human behaviour in the context of health and well-being, and how this translates to food choices and eating behaviours.
