Personal profile


I joined the department in 2014 and am a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology.  I am the Programme Director of the MSc in Applied Psychology for Children and Young People, the training programme for child Clinical Associates in Applied Psychology (CAAPs).  I also coordinate all the Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) courses within the department associated with the MSc in Psychological Therapies and for the third year trainees on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

I work half time at the University of Edinburgh and half time in NHS Lothian Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) where I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Lead the Eating Disorder Development Team.  

Research Interests:
