Research overview

My research has focused on the psychological mechanisms underlying and treatments for psychosis and bipolar disorder. I have worked extensively with people experiencing mental health difficulties and am passionate about improving person centred and evidenced based care. My current role involves conducting research at the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research, but also working clinically in Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust.

Career Details

I completed my BSc and MSC in Psychology at Bangor University, North Wales, before doing on to do a PhD and DClinPsy at the University of Manchester. My postdoctoral position involved developing and evaluating a smartphone software application (ClinTouch) for the ambulatory monitoring of psychosis. I worked for three years at the Psychosis Research Unit in Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust where I delivered therapy across randomised controlled trials for early psychosis and mania (MAPS, COMPARE, BART, PRODIGY). More recently, I have been a lecturer on the DClinPsy programme at the University of Manchester and Clinical Lead for Wigan Early Detection and Intervention Team (EDIT).

Current Research

My current research focuses primarily on the following areas:

i) The development and evaluation psychological interventions for psychosis and bipolar disorder, including new applications of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

ii) Understanding and preventing suicide in young people with emerging mental health difficulties and people with bipolar disorder.

iii) Finding new methods for assessing early mania and predicting subsequent mental health difficulties.  

iv) Creating and evaluating new eHealth platforms for supporting people with severe mental health difficulties.

v) Protecting the oral health of people with psychosis and bipolar disorder, and reducing oral health inequalities in these groups. 

vi) The changing care needs of people with bipolar disorder in later life.
