Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently in my first year of Clinical Psychology training. I am based at the John Radcliffe in Paediatric Psychology for my second placement. My first placement was in adult mental health at Healthy Minds, Buckinghamshire Primary Care Wellbeing Service.
Prior to clinical training, I worked as a research assistant conducting research with people affected by young onset and rare dementias, particularly Posterior Cortical Atrophy and Alzheimer's disease.
Alongside this role, I worked in the Women's Health department at UCLH, specifically within the perinatal mental health service where I worked therapeutically with women who were at risk of developing puerperal psychosis or depression, and co-facilitated psychoeducational and CBT-based groups for women who were in remission from breast-cancer.
