Dr Susie Hales has recently taken up a position at the Institute as a research tutor. Dr Hales completed her clinical psychology training in Oxford and then went on to undertake research on mental imagery processes and the effectiveness of brief imagery-based intervention working with Prof Emily Holmes.
When asked what she was looking forward to in her new role at the Institute, Dr Hales replied, "I am delighted to be part of this dynamic clinical psychology training programme, surrounded by so many talented and inspiring trainees and course team members. I am passionate about conducting and promoting innovative clinical research leading to improvements in patient care. I am looking forward to working with trainees to harness the wealth of clinical and research experience that they bring and support them to conduct meaningful research projects in line with their interests and values. I love the creative challenge of research and hope that I can convey some of this enthusiasm even to those that feel less confident about research at the start of training! I believe that trainees’ research can contribute significantly to the shaping of future patient care and policy, and I am keen to encourage and support the next generation of clinical psychologists to view research as a fundamental and exciting part of their role."
