Sapphira McBride

Research Assistant

I am a Research Assistant in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis team, led by Prof Daniel Freeman.

I am currently working on the gameChange and THRIVE trials, both of which are testing the use of Virtual Reality based cognitive therapy to help people with psychosis in their day-to-day life. 

I am also supporting the SleepWell trial, run by Prof Felicity Waite, which is a RCT aimed at assessing the feasibility and acceptability of a CBT intervention for insomnia for young people with At Risk Mental State. At Risk Mental State presentations may include sub-clinical symptoms of psychosis such as hallucinations, hearing voices, or feeling significant mistrust of others (paranoia).

I completed my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford and I'm passionate about the use of evidence-based, translational research in the development of effective, accessible and acceptable psychological interventions.
