Dr Catherine Huckle
My first degree was in Psychology at Southampton University. After graduation I travelled for a year before settling in South London. I spent two years working in a partnership project between Childrens' Charity NCH and Surrey County Council, supporting vulnerable children and their families. I then worked in forensic and primary care settings before beginning the Clinical Psychology doctorate training at UCL. Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist I have worked with older adults in a CMHT offering services for organic and functional difficulties, within an IAPT setting and within secondary care services for working age adults. I joined the PsychD Surrey course as an Associate Clinical Tutor in September 2016 and then as a Teaching Fellow in August 2017. I work at the University for three days a week and also work clinically with working age adults.
My interest is in severe and enduring mental health difficulties and the process of recovery, and issues of social inequalities.
I am the Admissions Lead for the PsychD Clinical psychology training programme and I also chair the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion sub-committee. I also lead on the Inter-Professional Learning activity for trainees on the programme and co-ordinate the Long Term Conditions unit. I am the named clinical tutor for trainees on the PsychD training course and I contribute to marking and teaching, and am responsible for allocation of working age adult (first year) clinical placements.
