Associate Director of Psychological Services Oxford Health NHS FT

  • Consultant Clinical Psychologist
  • Honorary Senior Clinical Research Fellow, Department of Psychiatry

I am a consultant clinical psychologist and am responsible for psychological services across all age groups within the Oxford Health Foundation NHS Trust. I am a long-term collaborator and member of the Old Age Psychiatry Team. My primary research interest is in the management of behavioural and psychiatric symptoms in dementia. I have published key studies pertaining to the assessment and treatment of these symptoms in nursing-home residents. My particular interest is in alternative interventions for psychosocial care in dementia, in particular as it can replace pharmacological management of behavioural changes in people with dementia. I am interested in improving care for older people and their carers (family and paid staff) and in  the practices and processes which facilitate implementation of research findings into NHS and Social Care practice.
