BSc MSc DClinPsy
I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist with a particular interest in youth mental health and physical health.
The focus of my current work is to develop, test, and trial an immersive virtual reality therapy for adolescents with needle fears. Digital innovation has the potential to improve access to effective and engaging mental health treatment for this group of young people.
Previously, I worked on randomised controlled trials evaluating virtual reality cognitive therapies for people with psychosis. I also have clinical experience working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Paediatrics.
I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and MSc in Psychological Research at the University of Oxford.
