Research Assistant

My Research Vision

My research is inspired by a desire to support people to make healthy changes in their lives through targeted interventions; I am especially passionate about working with patients in healthcare settings. My research aims to achieve lasting changes that contribute to the health and wellbeing of individuals.

BIOGRAPHY

Lauren completed her undergraduate psychology degree at the University of West Florida, later obtaining her MSc Psychology here at Coventry University. In 2014 Lauren was an intern at the Anna Freud Centre, working on the IMPACT-ME trial, which examined the personal experience of young people undergoing therapy for moderate to severe depression and incorporating the experiences of their families and their therapists. Lauren was also involved in the SIPS Jr trial at King’s College London, developing and screening alcohol interventions for young people aged 14-17.  In her free time Lauren volunteers with Cruse Bereavement Care, providing counselling styled support for children, young people, and adults experiencing difficulties related to grief.
