EXPERTISE

QUALIFICATIONS AND MEMBERSHIPS

My extensive clinical and research experience spans over twelve years across a wide range of NHS, social, third sector and private healthcare organisations. This experience equips me with a wealth of highly specialised knowledge, skill and passion around supporting children, young people and families. This includes understanding and supporting the complex emotional and neurodevelopmental needs and wellbeing of children, young people and families from a variety of social, cultural and community backgrounds.

 

My adaptive and flexible style involves engaging with qualities and positions of; humanity, compassion, non-judgement, curiosity, empathy, collaboration, equality and respect towards delivering high quality psychological input. I strongly advocate for the meaningful voices of children and young people to be central to any therapeutic approach I take. I aim to take time to set up sessions through listening and developing a shared and collaborative understanding of your needs towards planning together what would feel helpful to work towards, while ensuring that these agreed interventions continue to feel useful beyond sessions.

My thoughtful clinical practice draws upon integrating different therapeutic approaches to ensure assessments and psychological intervention sessions are comprehensive and tailored towards meeting your hopes and needs. I do this through adopting an overarching systemic lens to creatively integrate and tailor different evidence and practice based psychologically informed models, methods and techniques. I hold additional training and particularly enjoying practicing trauma informed therapies such as; Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Trauma Informed CBT, Systemic and Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and delivering Parenting Support.
