Ashley Teale

Assistant Psychologist

I am a Research Assistant in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) team, mainly working on gameChange.

gameChange is a multi-site randomised controlled trial; which aims to transform the lives of patients with psychosis, by providing psychological therapies through immersive virtual reality. This project targets patient's social anxiety, by exposing them to everyday environments in VR. This project involves collaborations with the Royal College of Arts, the McPin Foundation, NIHR, MindTech, OxfordVR, and multiple universities across the UK.

I've previously worked on the Managing Adolescent first episode Psychosis Study (MAPS), which aimed to determine the feasibility of a three arm trial, to determine the most effective treatment for adolescence with first episode (anti-psychotic medication vs. psychological intervention vs. a combination of both).

I completed my BSc Psychology degree at the University of Bath and have previously worked as an Honorary Assistant Psychologist at Swindon Psychological Therapies Service.
