I am a Higher Degree by Research Candidate in the School of Psychology undertaking a combined PhD and Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology. At present I am undertaking research into whether the use of eHealth mindfulness platforms by individuals, particularly children and adolescents, with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their caregivers shows any benefits to their mental health and wellness. My supervisors are Dr Diana Dorstyn and Dr Clemence Due

My research examines mindfulness treatment and whether it can improve the mental health and wellbeing of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their caregivers particularly with regard to eHealth mindfulness platforms.
