BA, DClinPsy, DPhil
Senior Academic Clinical Psychologist
Digital Precision Psychological Therapies
I am a clinical psychologist and researcher at the Oxford Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma (OxCADAT), the Oxford Health NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
My research focuses on therapist-guided internet-based psychological therapies for mental health problems. I am interested in the mechanisms of change underlying these treatments, and evaluating their effectiveness both in UK NHS mental health services (IAPT) and internationally. My clinical and research work focuses in particular on Cognitive Therapy treatments for Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), which was the topic of my DPhil, and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
I completed my undergraduate studies in Experimental Psychology here in Oxford, and my Clinical Psychology doctorate at the University of Bath.
