I have worked across a range of mental health services across the North East for the past five years. My experience extends across NHS and private healthcare settings, where I have worked as an activities coordinator, healthcare assistant, research assistant, assistant psychologist and a trainee clinical psychologist.
I am passionate about research and evidence informed practise and am looking to develop as a clinical academic through robust and innovative research. I am confident in research delivery and am enthusiastic about working alongside service users and the public. I am open to collaborations and opportunities as an early career researcher.
