BSc (Hons), PhD
Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am in the third year of training and am currently on placement in a paediatric psychology service.
I completed by undergraduate studies at the University of Exeter. During this time I also worked with clients with acquired brain injury and with children with learning disabilities and autism. I also enjoyed working as an intern in the AccEPT clinic, at the University of Exeter, with clients with depression and anxiety.
My interests include clinical health psychology, interventions for depression and mindfulness and compassion based interventions. My PhD involved the adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy course for parents with recurrent depression. We piloted the adapted manual and ran an exploratory randomised controlled trial, exploring its feasibility, acceptability and preliminary efficacy.
Prior to starting clinical training I worked as an Assistant Psychologist with adults with long term health conditions. I also worked as a research assistant in an IAPT service in Berkshire and at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention here in Oxford.
