Hello, I oversee the process of identifying young people who may be suitable to be assessed and treated at our Research Clinic. This involves working closely with our colleagues in the Berkshire CAMHS Common Point of Entry (CPE). Involvement in research can be as simple as completing questionnaires or some simple computer tasks, and young people benefit from our comprehensive assessment and evidence based talking treatments such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
I also manage support functions for the clinic and research activities, such as information systems and placement student recruitment. I have a PhD in Psychology and have worked with the AnDY team for several years, because I believe in the research aims of our clinic – to understand better what factors cause and maintain anxiety and depression, to improve access to treatment and to ensure treatments are effective.
