BSc (Hons), DClinPsy


Research Clinical Psychologist

I am a Research Clinical Psychologist working with Dr Polly Waite and Professor Paul Salkovskis within The Oxford Psychological Interventions for Children and Adolescents (TOPIC) Research Group. My work focuses on implementing brief, evidence-based CBT-informed treatment for adolescents experiencing obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at the University of Oxford in 2023, having previously graduated with an undergraduate degree in psychology (BSc [Hons]) from the University of Bath. 

Alongside my research post, I work as a Clinical Psychologist in an NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and I am accredited as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
