Ashlea Jeffs
Associate Research Fellow

Profile

I am currently working on the IMPROVE 2 Research Trial at The Mood Disorders Centre, University of Exeter, as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP). The IMPROVE 2 trial is an innovative trial to investigate and improve internet-based psychotherapy for depression and provides free and open access internet-delivered cognitive-behavioral therapy for people with major depression, supported by online guidance from a trained psychological wellbeing practitioner.

I also work as an Associate Lecturer on the PGCert Psychological Therapies Practice (Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) within CEDAR, University of Exeter.

Previously I worked as an Associate research Fellow on a research project called Hidden Wounds with Professor Ed Watkins and Professor Paul Farrand in collaboration with Help for Heroes.  Hidden Wounds aims to address the major unmet need of anxiety and depression in Armed Forces veterans and their families across the UK. The team have worked with Help for Heroes to develop bespoke evidence-based psychological interventions for veterans, their families, and the families of those still serving, helping to train the workforce delivering these interventions, and to conduct research to evaluate and improve these interventions.

I completed the Low Intensity Post Graduate Certificate as a student at the University of Exeter in April 2013 to become a qualified Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, following which I worked within IAPT for nearly 3 years in the role of PWP and also as a PWP Supervisor within the NHS and in my role within Hidden Wounds.
