Rosalind Watts

Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Rosalind Watts is the clinical lead of the Imperial College London Psilocybin for Depression study. She trained as a clinical psychologist and practiced psychotherapy for 6 years before joining the Imperial Psychedelic Research Centre (run by Dr. Robin Carhart Harris and Professor David Nutt) as a therapist ‘trip sitter’. She has developed a psychedelic therapy model ‘Accept, Connect, Embody’, and a psychometric measure of ‘connectedness’- which her qualitative research identified as a potential mechanism of therapeutic change in psychedelic approaches. Rosalind co-facilitates a monthly integration group for people who are attending psychedelic ceremonies for therapeutic purposes.
