Clinical Psychologist and Trial Coordinator

  • Clinical Psychologist and Trial Coordinator for the SlowMo study and trial therapist on the Feeling Safe Study

I am a Clinical Psychologist  and Trial Coordinator for the SlowMo trial, in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) team.

SlowMo is a multi-centre (London, Oxford and Sussex), randomised controlled trial funded by the NIHR EME programme, evaluating the clinical effectiveness and mechanisms of action of an innovative digital therapy (SlowMo) for treating persecutory delusions. SlowMo targets specific reasoning biases known to maintain persecutory beliefs. SlowMo supports people to 'slow down' for a moment to reduce fast thinking and helps people to access alternative explanations.

SlowMo is one of the first digital psychological therapies designed specifically for severe mental health problems, and addresses challenges to engagement and adherence by providing an easy to use and enjoyable interface.

I have also worked on the 'Feeling Safe' study as a trial therapist. The Feeling Safe study is a clinical trial of a novel psychological intervention targeting persecutory delusions.

I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and NIHR Faculty member. I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Oxford. My research during training was with the O-CAP team and investigated negative self-cognitions in people experiencing persecutory delusions.
