Research Clinical Psychologist
I am a clinical psychologist and researcher working with the Oxford Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma (OxCADAT). I am currently working on a programme of research led by Dr Jennifer Wild. We are developing, disseminating, and evaluating an intervention providing early intervention and prevention of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression in healthcare workers - SHAPE Recovery (Supporting Hospital and Paramedic Employees during and after COVID).
My clinical and research interests include prevention and early intervention, risk, PTSD, and complex PTSD. I have a special interest in prevention in the context of parent-infant work and post-partum post-traumatic stress disorder.
