Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently in my first year of clinical psychology training. My first placement is in an IAPT service for adults in Buckinghamshire.
My previous experience has been mainly in adult learning disability settings. I have worked as an assistant psychologist in a community learning disability team, working with adults with complex needs and training staff teams. I have also worked in assessment and treatment services for adults with moderate to severe learning disabilities who display challenging behaviour. Here I worked predominantly with staff teams, introducing behavioural interventions.
My interests at this point mainly lie in learning disability services, equality in access to mental health services, and attachment. I am keen to expand these through training!
I have also worked in forensic psychiatric secure settings with adults with enduring mental illness and personality disorder.
