Research Clinical Psychologist & NIHR Research Fellow
- The Feeling Safe Study
In my research I examine the prevalence and clinical impact of paranoia during adolescence. I also investigate the psychological causal mechanisms involved in the persistence of paranoia in young people and the implications for treatment development.
I also work as a trial therapist on the Feeling Safe study, a clinical trial examining a novel psychological intervention targeting persecutory delusions.
I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and completed a doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Oxford in 2016.
