Meet The Research Panel

Matthias graduated with first degrees in Philosophy and Psychology from the University of Marburg in 1994. In 1998 he completed his applied clinical psychology training at the University of Marburg with internships in Marburg, Berlin, and Edinburgh. His first position as a qualified clinical psychologist was in the Adolescent Mental Health Services in Greater Glasgow NHS. He moved to NHS Lothian and the University of Edinburgh in January 2000. During this time he was able to carry out his Ph.D. research into psychological interventions for bipolar disorders. This research involved the implementation of a randomized controlled trial of Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy and an investigation of the role of interpersonal and cognitive factors in mood regulation in bipolar disorders and the recovery process. Since 2009 he is Head of Clinical & Health Psychology and Programme Director for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology training program at the University of Edinburgh. He is further a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in the Early Psychosis Support Service at CAMHS Lothian.

Helen is a Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow. She spent time working as an Orphanage Doctor in Guatemala in the early 1990s prior to training in Psychiatry, and this stimulated an interest in the effects of early maltreatment on children’s development. ‎Her research focus has been on Attachment Disorder: clinical aspects, assessment tools, and behavioral genetics. She is now conducting intervention research for maltreated children including a randomized controlled trial of an infant mental health service for young children in foster care.

Clair is Chair and co-founder of Mental Health Research UK and was formerly Chair of Gloucestershire NHS Trusts. Clair helped to set up Mental Health Research UK in 2008 and has made grants for PhD’s to a number of different universities in the UK. Her research background is in breast cancer research and so she is very well versed in best practice when commissioning new research.
