Mr Adam Ottley-Porter
Academic and research departmentsSchool of Psychology.
Adam works as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) within an NHS IAPT service alongside his teaching role. This involves supporting people with mild to moderate symptoms of depression and anxiety. This is a mixture of 1-1, group and computerised support.
His working background is primarily working with individuals who have moderate or severe Learning Disabilities. This remains a key area of interest. Adam continues to liaise regularly with colleagues in the Learning Disability services as part of his PWP role to ensure people that have a Learning Disability and are are able to access mainstream mental health services are provided the opportunity to do so.
