MA MSc DClinPsy
Research Clinical Psychologist & NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow
I am currently undertaking a 5-year program of research to develop the psychological understanding and treatment of harmful grandiose delusions. I am also a trial therapist on the Feeling Safe Study, a clinical trial investigating a novel psychological intervention for persecutory beliefs. Prior to this I was a trial therapist on The Sleep Study - a pilot randomised controlled trial of a sleep intervention designed specifically for psychiatric inpatients.The intervention included CBT for sleep problems and bright light therapy.
In addition to my role within O-CAP I also work as a consultant clinical psychologist for the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre, which provides specialist CBT training and supervision. My area of particular interest is CBT for psychosis and I am the course lead for the OCTC PGCert in Enhanced CBT: Psychosis and Bipolar. I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and BABCP accredited CBT practitioner.
