Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently on maternity leave and will be returning in August 2020. If you would like to get in touch regarding my research, then please direct any queries to my supervisor, Dr Ian McCubbin, who is contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have completed a specialist placement in an Early Intervention in Psychosis team and a Community Psychosis team, along with core placements in an Adult Mental Health Service in Witney, a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Banbury, an Intellectual Disabilities Community Service in Banbury, and an Older Adults Community Service in Banbury.
My dissertation consisted of a quantitative study exploring the relationship between sexual regret and psychological wellbeing in young women, along with a systematic review of the literature relating to the association between casual sex and psychological wellbeing.
Prior to training I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in an Acute Care Service. I have also worked in an Early Intervention in Psychosis team and in a school supporting children with ASD and learning disabilities.
