I joined PenCLAHRC in July 2016 as a Senior Research Fellow. My primary experience has been as a Clinical Psychologist scientist-practitioner with experience working in adult mental health with complex, treatment refractory conditions. I am also an experienced psychotherapy trainer/supervisor for mental health professionals. My areas of expertise include psychotherapy effectiveness and efficacy research; psychotherapy process research examining mechanisms of change; psychological treatments for depression and medically unexplained symptoms; Short-term Psychodynamic Psychotherapies.
I have a particular interest in emotional contributors to health and illness behavior. I have been involved in clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses contributing to the evidence-base in psychotherapies for common mental health disorders. My focus in PenCLAHRC will be to contribute to applied health service research that aims to develop and evaluate innovative ways to assess and treat mental health and long-term conditions, including medically unexplained symptoms.
