Dr Kim Wright
Associate Professor


I am an Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology and a registered Clinical Psychologist. I obtained a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) from the Institute of Psychiatry in 2005 and my PhD, also from the Institute of Psychiatry, in 2007.

I joined the University of Exeter in January 2007. Prior to this I worked as a Clinical Psychologist in a Community Mental Health Team in south London, and at the Affective Disorders Unit, Maudsley Hospital, London, a specialist adult in-patient and out-patient service.

My research programme centres upon developing more effective psychosocial interventions for Bipolar Disorder and Depression. In particular I am interested in how response to minor changes in positive mood and energy levels may contribute to the onset of Bipolar episodes. Related to this I am currently investigating response to positive mood in people with and without mood disorders, and the impact of exercise upon the development of hypomania.
