I am a research assistant working as part of the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis team on the gameChange and THRIVE trials. These studies aim to use virtual reality therapies to improve the lives of people with psychosis who are experiencing anxiety in everyday situations.
My main role involves recruitment and assessment for these studies across local NHS trusts.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Manchester before completing an MSc in Clinical Psychology with Newcastle University. Prior to joining the team in Oxford, I worked as an assistant psychologist across community mental health teams in the North East of England. I have previously conducted research into self harm, hoarding disorder, voice hearing, and depression, and have a keen interest in complex mental health problems, and transdiagnostic approaches.
