Personal profile


I joined the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Therapies as a Lecturer in Evidence-Based Low-Intensity Psychological Therapies in March 2021. Alongside this role, I also worked in the UEA Talking Therapies team in Student Services (Wellbeing) from 2017-2023, providing support to students experiencing difficulties with their wellbeing and mental health.

Prior to my employment at the UEA, I worked in the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) where I assessed for mental health needs and provided evidence-based low intensity psychological therapies. My background before training in IAPT included working in a variety of support services in the mental health and social care sector, as well as completing my BA (Hons) in Social Work at the UEA.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I currently lead on 'Working with Youth Mental Health' teaching on the course, supporting trainee PWPs to develop their knowledge and skills in assessing and providing low intensity CBT interventions for this age group.
