Chloe Chessell

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research focuses on increasing access to psychological treatments for preadolescent children with anxiety problems and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) through the development, evaluation, and implementation of brief therapist guided, parent-led Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions.

As part of my post-doctoral research role, I currently lead the implementation of a brief online therapist guided, parent-led CBT intervention for child anxiety problems in routine mental health services. Prior to my post-doctoral role, I completed a PhD at the University of Reading, which involved developing a brief parent-led CBT intervention for preadolescent children with OCD and conducting a preliminary evaluation of this treatment.

I am also a qualified Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) where I support parents to learn CBT tools to help their children to overcome anxiety problems and OCD.
