  • About

    Gabbi is a Research Assistant and Wellness Adviser assisting with the evaluation of public health programmes to help increase physical activity levels. She also delivers one to one health checks and lifestyle management advice as part of the award winning workplace wellness programme.

    Gabbi joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 following the completion of her undergraduate degree in Psychology at Sheffield Hallam University and MSc in Sports and Exercise Psychology. She is an active member of the British Psychological Society and the Register for Exercise Professionals and is an advanced personal trainer with experience of leading group activity for a range of individuals in the community.

    As part of the SHU wellness team, Gabbi leads on the development and delivery of staff workshops including Eating for Health and Wellbeing, Immune Function, Heart Heath, Work Life Balance and Exercising Effectively. In 2015 she developed and piloted a group Weight Management course for staff, which included sessions around healthy eating, physical activity and relapse prevention. With excellent knowledge around behaviour change, much of her work focuses on physical activity and eating behaviour. She has implemented this in the delivery of the Healthy Lifestyle Advice aspect of the Train the Practitioner programme as part of the Academic Health Science Network. Involvement in this project has also included providing taster sessions for staff and assisting in the training of new practitioners.

    As research assistant to a number of public health and physical activity evaluations, Gabbi is responsible for data collection, data analysis and report writing.
