Overview

I am the Director of the Low-Intensity CBT (LICBT) cliinical training portfolio within CEDAR; Psychology, managing four programmes from Degree Level 6 to MSci associated with the role of Psychological Wellbeing Practioner (PWP). This new psychological therapies role was establsihed within the NHS England Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) mental health programme for the treatment of common mental health problems. 

Given my national training profile in this area, I am currently editing the first international training textbook in LICBT for publication by SAGE in 2020. I am a member of several national committees such as IAPT Education and Training, IAPT working group inputting into the NHS 10 year forward plan for mental health, Skills for Health widening the psychological workforce and PWP apprenticeship development group. Arising from membership of these groups I have worked in teams producing policy and guidance documents such as the national IAPT PWP training curriculum and Positive Practce Guides for Armed Forces Veterans (with Andy Bacon) and Older People (led by Professor Ken Laidlaw). 

My research profile also resides within LiCBT having several research projects in this area, mostly seeking to improve access to psychological therapies for all communites by broadening the applications of LICBT. For example, one research programme informed the deveopment of 'Hidden Wounds' a Step 2 LICBT service for Help for Heroes. The service adapted specifically for the Armed Forces culture, provides treatment for common mental health problems in Armed Forces Veterans.

Another research project developed a LICBT intervention for depression, combining behavioural activation with physical activiity promotion (BAcPAc). This intervention has significant impact, being used by many IAPT mental health services, forming the basis of a current research grant (eMotion) to adapt into an on-line cCBT platform, adapted to form the basis of an intervention (Oh Happy Day!) delivered through churches for Black Americans and forms the basis of the PROMOTE research programme.

PROMOTE aims to make LICBT behavioural activation for depression accesible for people with dementia through the facilitation of carer support. This intervention, amongst several other LICBT interventions I have authored (available freely on the CEDAR website for use by mental health services) are extensively downloaded and used by services across the UK and internationally. My national and internatonal profile in LICBT training, intervention development and research have attracted several academics from top 100 Worldwide Universities in the USA, Hong Kong and Japan to work with me on sabbatical, seeking to develop and implement LICBT into their contexts.  

I adopt an Evidence Based and Scientist Practitioner approach to my research, training and clinical practice working within the Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Royal Devon and Exeter and previously The Royal London Hospitals. This informs my underlying philosopy and values connected to my work that fails to recognise a divide between training, research and evidence-based clinical practice.
