Clinical Psychologist

I am an HCPC registered clinical psychologist with a strong interest in improving the 1) effectiveness and 2) accessibility of evidence-based psychological treatments. I am particularly passionate about the mental health of young people. 

I am currently involved in two projects within the University of Oxford and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. I work as a clinical trial therapist on the Talking with Voices (TwV) Trial, which is a large multi-site randomised controlled trial, ran by Dr Eleanor Longden and Prof Tony Morrison (University of Manchester). TwV aims to measure the effectiveness of a new psychological therapy for people who hear persistent voices. In my second role, I am involved in the development of the Oxfordshire Prevention & Early Detection (OPEN) Service. This is a new service for young people living in Oxfordshire who at risk of developing serious mental health problems such as psychosis or bipolar.

Prior to joining the O-CAP, I completed a clinical doctorate at the University of Oxford and a PhD at the University of Reading. My research on the clinical training focused on improving the identification of people with at-risk mental state and understanding barriers to seeking professional help for symptoms of severe mental health problems in young people of ethnic minority backgrounds. We also developed and evaluated a single session school-based intervention on understanding unusual sensory experiences in adolescents. My research during the PhD focused on understanding the barriers to help-seeking in adolescents with anxiety and/or depression, as well as improving the early identification and treatment of these disorders in young people.
