BSc (Hons), MSc, PG Cert
Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently in my final year of clinical psychology training. I am working in the Renal and Transplant Service at the Churchill Hospital. My previous placements have involved working with children in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), with working age adults in Psychological Services, with older adults in a community mental health team (CMHT), and with adults in a learning disabilities service.
I am completing my dissertation with Dr Louise Dalton in the Department of Psychological Medicine at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I am investigating children's developing awareness of ptosis (a common paediatric eye condition).
Prior to clinical training, I worked as Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner in a London IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) service. This role consisted of delivering low-intensity Cognitive Behavioural interventions to individuals with anxiety disorders and depression.
Previous roles have also included working with individuals with psychosis in a community rehabilitation team, and working on an adult neurological and stroke rehabilitation unit.
I am particularly interested in the impact of physical activity on mental health and wellbeing. Furthermore, I am interested in developments regarding integrating mental and physical health services.
