Vincent Deary Staffprofile Northumbriauniversity225

Vincent is a writer, researcher, and practitioner health psychologist. He started his academic career fairly late in life, completing his Medical Research Council (MRC) Fellowship funded PhD in 2011. Prior to this he worked mainly as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with an interest in researching new interventions. Thanks to the MRC funding, he made the transition from clinician to clinical academic and continues to focus on the development and trialling of new interventions for a variety of health complaints. He still works clinically one morning a week in the UK’s first trans-diagnostic fatigue clinic. When he was 50 he published his first book, How We Are. This is the first part of the How To Live trilogy, published by Penguin Press. These books bring together his clinical and academic interests, along with his interest in philosophy, literature and popular culture, to paint a portrait of human life, suffering and well-being.
