Aliénor (Lili) Lemieux-Cumberlege (she/they) is a Clinical Psychologist working across two Community Mental Health Teams in Edinburgh. In addition to completing a specialist Addiction Psychology placement during clinical training, Lili also previously worked in frontline homelessness services and recovery services in Canada and Scotland. 

Lili’s DClinPsych thesis involved two strands of work: 1) a systematic review of the implementation of Psychologically Informed Environments with staff in homelessness services, and 2) an empirical study on organisational and individual factors that may predict PTSD, secondary traumatic stress, and burnout in frontline workers. 

Lili’s current research focuses on interventions to support staff well-being and psychological thinking, including reflective practice and team formulation. They also have a strong interest in Compassion Focused Therapy approaches to working with multiple exclusion and complex trauma, the factors affecting ‘drug of choice’, and LGBTQIA+ mental health.
