I am research assistant within the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) research group, led by Professor Daniel Freeman.
I currently work across two large clinical research trials: the RAPID trial and the PHOENIX trial. The RAPID trial investigates whether remote psychosocial interventions could prevent unnecessary psychiatric hospital admissions for patients experiencing an acute suicidal mental health crisis. The Phoenix Trial investigates the use of Virtual Reality (VR) therapy to support building self-esteem in young people experiencing psychosis.
I'm committed to providing equitable access to patient centered, quality care; I currently also work in the Suicide Prevention Access and Inclusion team in Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
I completed my undergraduate degree with Cardiff University (BSc Psychology) and went on to qualify as a CBT therapist with the University of Southampton (PGCert Low Intensity CBT).
I have over 5 years of clinical experience, including working as an assistant neuropsychologist on a traumatic brain injury neurorehabilitation ward and as a lead well-being practitioner in a stroke rehabilitation center.
