Chloe Chessell

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research focuses on increasing access to psychological treatments for preadolescent children with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety disorders through the development and implementation of therapist guided, parent-led Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions.

I am currently completing my PhD at the University of Reading, under the supervision of Professor Cathy Creswell, Dr Brynjar Halldorsson, and Professor Kate Harvey. My PhD involved developing a brief parent-led CBT intervention for preadolescent children with OCD and conducting a preliminary evaluation of this treatment.

Prior to starting my PhD, I trained as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP), where I delivered low-intensity CBT-informed treatments to adults with anxiety and depression. More recently, I have been involved in delivering parent-led CBT interventions to preadolescent children with anxiety disorders and OCD.
