Trainee Clinical Psychologist

I am currently in my second year of Clinical Psychology training. My first placement this year is in an Older Adult Psychology Service. 

Prior to training, I completed an undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol (UoB). Following this, I pursued my interest in research by volunteering in the UoB Nutrition and Behaviour Unit. During this time, I was lucky enough to assist with two different projects; one investigating the impact of natural variation in eating topography on subsequent food consumption, and another investigating the effect of eating rate on BMI.  Before starting clinical training, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist gaining experience in the psychological management of chronic pain and chronic fatigue.

Whilst I have a keen interest in clinical health psychology I am enthusiastic to experience placements across the lifespan, gaining further insight into the many different areas of this rewarding profession. Previous experience of working as an assistant psychologist in a pilot service has also fuelled my interest in service development and delivery.
