I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at York University in 2000, following which I worked as a Research Associate at the University of East Anglia before completing my Clinical Psychology training there in 2005. Since qualifying, I have worked in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Suffolk. I have a particularly interest in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Therapy at Oxford University in 2010. In addition to my clinical work, I have been actively involved in the development of the ROCKY OCD research project and worked on the project as a trial therapist since 2008. I joined UEA as a Clinical Tutor at the start of 2011.

I am involved in the teaching of clinical skills, including CBT skills and the creative skills required for working with children and young people. I also run a 2nd year case discussion group and a 3rd year specialist CBT case discussion group. I am also involved in organising and facilitating supervisor training workshops for local supervisors.

I am academic advisor for a number of trainees as well as supervising several research projects and theses. In addition, I help to plan placements for the trainees and have been involved with designing new placement forms for use at initial, mid and end of placement meetings. I have also negotiated setting up an electronic log book system for the trainees to keep a log of their clinical work.
