BSc (Hons), MSc
Trainee Clinical Psychologist
What I do
I am currently in my first year of Clinical Psychology Training. My first placement is based in the ‘Getting More Help’ pathway within North Buckinghamshire Community CAMHS. This pathway works with young people experiencing moderate to severe mental health difficulties.
Prior to clinical training, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in an adult community mental health team where I worked therapeutically with clients experiencing bipolar disorders, personality disorders and psychosis. Before this role, I worked in adult acute inpatient services where I facilitated therapeutic groups utilising cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
I have also worked as a Clinical Research Assistant in a child and adolescent mental health service where I conducted clinical assessments with young people experiencing difficulties with anxiety and low mood. Previously, I also worked as a Research Assistant on a large-scale, longitudinal project investigating the developmental pathways to schizophrenia.
