My clinical and research expertise is in an enhanced form of CBT for eating disorders (CBT-E), which I delivered as a trial therapist for several years. I took a particular interest in the mediators of change in psychological treatments.

More recently, the focus of my work has been on disseminating CBT-E. This began with the development and evaluation of more scalable forms of training clinicians to deliver evidence-based psychological treatments. This work is funded by a Strategic Award by the Wellcome Trust. This has included the development of a training website for therapists learning CBT-E and a role-play based measure of therapist competence.

Since then, I have turned my attention onto cases of eating disorders in the community and reaching the public directly. Currently, I am working on the development and evaluation of Digital CBTe, a self-help programme for bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder which is delivered online (via a website and a mobile application). This has been derived from CBT-E. I am also researching how best to reach and engage people in the community who have an emerging eating disorder and are ambivalent about seeking help.
