Dr Sula Windgassen works in the NHS as a health psychologist and senior cognitive behavioural therapist working with people with long term health conditions and Axis I mental health disorders.
Sula completed her health psychology doctoral training and PhD in psychological medicine at King’s College London, publishing research papers on the role of psychological factors in irritable bowel syndrome.
