Biography

Gabriel Davies completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Manchester in 2017, looking at the impact of insomnia on young people experiencing psychosis. She has since worked across the private and public sectors leading diverse projects broadly related to evaluation. These have ranged from assessing services for veterans in the Welsh criminal justice system, to the humanitarian needs of people forced to migrate across Latin America. Gabriel is a Churchill Fellow, having been awarded a fellowship in 2020 to explore the secondary prevention of child sexual abuse in Germany and India.

From 2021-2024 Gabriel lived in Mexico, where she studied postmodern approaches to therapy at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and became part of the narrative therapy collective Casa Tonalá, focusing on community-based treatment and the decolonisation of therapeutic techniques.

Gabriel joined KCL in 2024, as a Research Fellow on the ACDI (Advance Choice Documents Implementation) project.
