My current role in O-CAP is Lead Clinical Psychologist and Trial Coordinator of the Feeling Safe Study. This is a trial of a novel psychological intervention for overcoming persecutory delusions. I previously worked as the trial coordinator and therapist on the Better Sleep Trial (BEST) an evaluation of a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) intervention for insomnia for individuals with delusions and/or hallucinations within the context of a diagnosis of psychosis. In addition, I have also worked on the Virtual Reality study (using virtual reality to enhance experiences of safety amongst patients with persecutory beliefs) and Self-Confidence study (a study using CBT to improve self confidence in people with psychosis).
I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and completed my clinical doctorate at the University of Oxford. Prior to clinical training I worked on studies evaluating CBT for people at ultra-high risk of psychosis and developing approaches to promote recovery in early psychosis.
