Following a career change from management, I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of East London in 1999, followed by a research PhD at the University of Sheffield. The thesis explored attentional processing in social anxiety and social phobia using cognitive experimental techniques.
During my time in Sheffield, I also worked as an Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University designing and delivering a range of lectures and workshops for a total of 5 years. I then started my Clinical Psychology training in 2004 which I successfully completed in 2007. Since qualifying, I have worked in a range of clinical settings predominantly working with adult clients with complex presentations and also child and families.
I completed my Dialectal Behaviour Therapy training in 2008 and have a particular interest in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as Cognitive Analytical Therapy. I am a fully accredited CBT practitioner with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy. In addition to my clinical work, I was also a Senior Lecturer at Salomons working on both the IAPT course and providing research supervision on the Clinical Psychology course. I left Salomons in March of 2010 to join UEA as a Senior Clinical Tutor at the start of 2011.

My research interests include further detailed exploration of the cognitive mechanisms in anxious and depressed populations with a specific emphasis on the efficacy of Cognitive Bias Modification tasks within clinical populations. Furthermore, I am extremely interested in research within the IAPT arena.
I am involved in the teaching of generic clinical skills with trainees. My specialist teaching area includes CBT and CAT workshops and I co-ordinate the CBT module. I also teach basic Dialectical Behaviour Therapy skills in relation to working with self-harm and also using the CAT model to work with childhood survivors of child sexual abuse. I run case discussion groups and will be running a 3rd year specialist CBT case discussion group from October 2012.
My key role on the course is placement planning and allocation for all the trainees across the 3 years. In addition, I have a liaison on role with our placement supervisors and I am also involved in organising and facilitating supervisor training workshops for local supervisors. Furthermore, I am an academic advisor for a number of trainees on the Clinical Psychology Course as well as supervising several research projects.
