Amelia Davies

Trainee Clinical Psychologist


Clinical Placements

I am in my third year of training and currently undertaking a 12-month specialist placement with Berkshire Traumatic Stress Service.

Over the previous two years of training I have completed 6-month placements in Acute Inpatient Adult Mental Health, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Older People's Mental Health and Adult Learning Disability services.


My doctoral research is focused on investigating alternatives to psychiatric inpatient admission. This includes carrying out an empirical study and a systematic literature review. The former will explore individuals' experiences of co-producing an 'alternative to admission' community service. The systematic review will investigate the effectiveness of crisis houses.

Work undertaken prior to training

Prior to training I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in adult mental health, older peoples' services and a specialist anxiety and trauma service. I also carried out research, evaluating a pilot psychology service within the Oral and Maxillofacial Trauma Department at the Royal London Hospital.

professional INTERESTS

My interests include trauma, systemic/ narrative approaches and community psychology.
