BSc (Hons), MSc.

Trainee Clinical Psychologist

what I do

I am in my first year of clinical psychology training and am currently on my first placement in Oxford in Children's Psychological Medicine. I am based at the John Radcliffe Children's Hospital and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, working with children, young people and their families.

Professional Interests

Before starting training I worked as an assistant psychologist in a CAMHS service where I carried out individual interventions with young people to help them manage their emotions and overcome anxiety and depression. I also worked in a neuro team carrying out neuropsychological assessments with people who had experienced a brain injury both in an inpatient and outpatient setting.

My second assistant psychologist role was in neuropsychology and oncology. In this role I worked individually delivering CBT-type interventions and cognitive rehabilitation as well as carrying out neuropsychological assessment. I also ran a pilot psychological wellbeing group for women with breast cancer drawing on CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques. Alongside this, I worked at Headway the Brain Injury charity supporting brain injury survivors with cognitive rehabilitation courses and psychological adjustment post-injury.
