I am a Clinically and Forensically endorsed psychologist with an interest in assisting women participating in infertility treatment. My research project is focused on developing an ACT program, with Clinical Hypnosis to improve the mental health, well being, and pregnancy rates of these women. I also hope to investigate the effectiveness of facilitating this program face to face compared to delivery in an online format.
As part of my PhD, I have completed a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis entitled: Group psychological interventions for wellbeing in women undertaking fertility treatment: A systematic review and meta-analysis. This review has been registered with Prospero: CRD42020171956 and the manuscript has been submitted for review.
My supervisors are Dr. Melissa Oxlad (University of Adelaide) and Dr. Talitha Best (Central Queensland University).
I also work in Private Practice providing clinical intervention, clinical hypnosis and group treatment (Mindfulness).
