What is the SlowMo trial?
I am a research assistant in the O-CAP team, primarily working on the SlowMo study.
SlowMo is a multi-centre randomised controlled trial (London, Oxford and Sussex) funded by the NIHR EME programme, evaluating the clinical effectiveness and mechanisms of action of an innovative digital therapy (SlowMo) for persecutory delusions. SlowMo targets thinking habits which are known to contribute to paranoia, and works by supporting people to slow down for a moment to reduce fast thinking and the subsequent impact of paranoia on their lives. SlowMo is also 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 enjoyable interface.
Previously I worked as an assistant psychologist in an outpatient Eating Disorders Service. I completed my BSc in Psychology at the University of Warwick.
