Research overview

My research focuses on the psychological mechanisms underlying and treatments for psychosis, bipolar disorder and suicidality. 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 and 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 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

I am currently co-chief investigator on two NIHR funded feasibility trials. The Mental Imagery for Suicidality in Students Trial (MISST) evaluates a brief positive mental imagery intervention for reducing suicidal ideation in university students. The Mouth Matters in Mental Health Trial is looking at using link workers to enable people with severe mental health difficulties to access a dentist. I am also site lead in LSCFT for the IPPACT, CAMEO and IBPI research projects.
