MA MSc DClinPsy

Research Clinical Psychologist & NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow

I am a research clinical psychologist working in the O-CAP team. I have recently commenced an NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship during which I will undertake a 5-year program of research to develop the psychological understanding and treatment of harmful grandiose delusions.

Previously I was the trial therapist on The Sleep Study which is a pilot randomised controlled trial of a sleep intervention designed specifically for psychiatric inpatients. The study was set on Vaughan Thomas ward, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. The intervention includes CBT for sleep problems and bright light therapy. I am currently also a trial therapist on the Feeling Safe Study, a clinical trial investigating a novel psychological intervention for persecutory beliefs.

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.
