She then moved to the Institute of Psychiatry in London researching into the use of computerised CBT for anxiety disorders with Professor Isaac Marks. She developed the self-help computer CBT program 'Fear Fighter' which continues to be used by sufferers. During this period she worked as a Clinical Lecturer in Behavioural Psychotherapy.
