Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a research clinical psychologist: I did my research training (PhD) at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, and my clinical training (DClinPsychol) at the University of Edinburgh. 

 

As a clinical academic, my research overlaps with my work as a mental health professional, and involves: 

  • Testing the efficacy of psychological therapies for mental and physical health conditions in RCTs
  • Developing Acceptance & Commitment Therapy interventions and measures for use with mental and physical health conditions
  • Exploring new assessment and treatment methods for neurological conditions - largely functional neurological disorders

 

Most of my teaching is on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, where I am Academic Director, but I teach across clinically-relevant masters courses and the UG programme. The main topics I cover are:

  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
  • Psychological Assessment and Formulation
  • Clinical application of psychometrics
  • Basic psychotherapy skills
  • Viva skills
