I am a practicing Psychological Therapist with a passion for Psychology. I enjoy studying with a particular interest in psychology, insomnia, psychopharmacology and language.
I have an honours degree in Psychology with additional post-graduate qualifications in psychological therapies, specialising in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for depression and anxiety disorders.
I have worked as a research trial therapist with the University of Exeter between 2012-2015 and I have a Master's in Psychological Therapies Practice and Research. I am currently working towards my Doctorate in Clinical Research.
Aside from psychology, I am fascinated by language. I can often be found studying linguistics and modern languages. I have been learning Russian for seven years and I'm relatively proficient in Italian and German.
I have supervised BSc and post-graduate trainees to develop their academic and clinical psychological practice over the past four years. I am particularly interested in supporting clinical expertise through evidence-based applications of psychological theory into practice. Thus, I have an understanding and interest in clinical work, yet I am well aware of the difficulties one might encounter in academia.
My teaching approach is flexible to the needs of students. I aim to tailor my teaching approach to the student's individual learning style and goals alongside the expectations of their course. I am easy-going and hope to share my passion for psychology encouraging students' critical thinking and engagement with their course such that they can gain the most from their learning.
For those studying at undergraduate level, I can advise on essay writing, proof reading and I have reading resources I would be happy to share to assist your learning. I have particular interests in psychological therapies for depression and anxiety disorders, insomnia and psychopharmacology.
