Research Clinical Psychologist
As a clinician and a researcher in the field of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I am involved in the development, evaluation and dissemination of effective treatments for this problem.
Together with the team at the Oxford Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, we are developing an internet-based version of Cognitive Therapy for PTSD, which will be tested as part of a forthcoming trial.
My research also involves testing and improving elements of PTSD treatments, such as imagery rescripting and returning to the scene of the trauma. I am also interested in developing treatments for difficult symptoms of PTSD, such as survivor guilt.
I regularly teach other clinicians about working with PTSD, and am involved with research into the dissemination of treatments, and how to develop effective teaching.
