Trainee Clinical Psychologist
What I do
I am in the early stages of my doctoral research which focuses on eating disorder-related symptoms and treatment adherence in young people with cystic fibrosis. Dr Anna Elderton and Dr Myra Cooper are co-supervising my research study.
I have particular interests in research and working with young people in the areas of forensic psychology, learning disabilities and paediatric psychology. I completed an MSc in Forensic Psychology and conducted a piece of research exploring responses to harmful sexual behaviour exhibited by young children.
Prior to training I worked in a variety of settings which included learning disability CAMHS, tier 2 CAMHS, tier 4 (inpatient) CAMHS, the National Autistic Society and adult neuropsychology.
