Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am in my third year of clinical training and am currently on placement across an Early Intervention in Psychosis team and a Community Psychosis team.
I have completed 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 is a quantitative study exploring the relationship between sexual regret and psychological wellbeing in young women.
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.
