From here, he moved to work as an Assistant Psychologist in the Russell Cairns Unit in Oxford and went on to complete his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (ClinPsyD) at the University of Manchester. Following the completion of his training, Dr Teager worked as a Clinical Neuropsychologist in the Trafford Community Neurological Rehabilitation Team before moving to work alongside the Video Telemetry Team here at Salford Royal. He completed the PGDip in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Glasgow and has also completed the British Psychological Society's Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN).

Dr Teager's research includes work with Professor Adrian Wells on metacognitive therapy for symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He also lectures at Manchester, Liverpool, and Manchester Metropolitan Universities.
