BSc, MSc, DClinPsy
Research Clinical Psychologist and NIHR Doctoral Fellow
I am currently working on the gameChange project, which aims to transform services for patients with psychosis by providing psychological therapies using immersive virtual reality. This project involves collaborations with the Royal College of Arts, the McPin Foundation, NIHR MindTech, OxfordVR, and multiple NHS trusts and universities across the UK.
My fellowship aims to develop a better understanding of the psychological factors that lead to violence by forensic patients with psychosis. This will feed into the development of a novel virtual reality psychological therapy aimed at reducing violence in forensic settings.
I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and BABCP accredited therapist.
