BSc (Hons), PGCert (Low Intensity CBT intervention)
Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently in my final of the Oxford Doctorate in Clinical Psychology training course. Over the course of training, I have completed the following placements:
- Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Community Team
- Tier 3 Specialist Adult Mental Health Placement supporting individuals with a diagnosis of Personality Disorder
- Community Older Adult Mental Health
- Community Adult Learning Disability team
For my final year specialisation, I work with the Community Head Injury Service. I undertake neuropsychological testing and provide appropriate psychological intervention for individuals and couples.
Over the course of my three years, I have become increasingly interested in ageing, longevity and the impact of loneliness on mental health in older adults. My hope is to build a holistic approach to ageing by combining health economics, neuropsychological perspectives and person-centre psychological therapy.
My doctoral thesis examines the links between early developmental attachment problems and hoarding disorder, a difficulty defined in the older adult population. I am interested in the role that emotional regulation deficits have to play in the development and maintenance of hoarding disorder.
