Prior to training I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in a forensic mental health service for adults, where I enjoyed working in a large psychology team. I have also worked in a forensic CAMHS and in the community supporting adults with ASD and learning disabilities.


I am currently in the early stages of my doctoral research, which is focusing on the links between stress, anxiety and affective flexibility. This research is supervised by Professor Elaine Fox and Dr Maud Grol from the Oxford Centre for Emotions and Affective Neuroscience (OCEAN).
