Personal profile

Particulars

I am a Clinical Psychologist and completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at the University of Liverpool in 2015. I held subsequent clinical posts in paediatric autism, paediatric psychology, and Child & Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) and Eating Disorders services. Currently I work as a Clinical Psychology Teaching Fellow on the DClinPsy course at Queen's University Belfast. I also hold a small clinical caseload in paediatric psychology and neurodevelopmental services within the NHS.

Research Interests

My particular clinical interests are in working therapeutically with physical health and neurodevelopmental conditions in children and young people, and in working therapeutically with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) approaches. My research interests align with this - I am interested in research examining aspects of physical health and neurodevelopment alongside mental health, particularly in children / young people but also with adults. My DClinPsy thesis explored trait mindfulness and psychological flexibility in adults with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and I have completed audit and research presentations looking at diabetes education in adult services and anorexia nervosa in teenage males.
