Professor Richard Cheston

About me

I worked for 20 years as a Consultant clinical Psychologist in the NHS. I have a specific clinical and research interest around understanding dementia as an existential threat that people respond to in a variety of ways. I work for half a day a week at the RICE memory clinic in Bath, and also have an Honorary contract with AWP, the local mental health NHS trust

Area of expertise

Research with people affected by dementia, with a particular emphasis on: how meaning is established; how people change the way they understand their dementia; anxiety and fear about dementia; and thinking of dementia as an existential threat.
