I taught for five years at Anna Freud Centre on the child development module of two MScs. I was a practice tutor for children and young people's IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) at King's College London for two years. I have lectured at clinical training courses at UCL, Royal Holloway, IOPPN and UEL, teaching on working with children and using CBT for self harm and for psychosis with young adults. I also lecture on science communication for UCL. 

I sometimes do less academic speaking, e.g. "In discussion with Claudia Hammond at Southwark Playhouse's 'Learning To Drive' (reviewed here).
