I am a chartered Psychologist specialised in helping young people and their families to make sense of and find ways to overcome emotional and behavioural difficulties.
I have been offering Psychological therapy to children and adults for over 5 years within the NHS. I currently work part-time for a specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) where I work with children and teenagers with complex mental health problems, as well as with their parents and families. I offer psychological assessment and therapy, as well as consultations with health professionals, social workers and with schools within this role.
Prior to becoming a Psychologist, I completed a psychology undergraduate degree at Newcastle University; after which I undertook further post-graduate training in Therapeutic Skills. Following this, I worked with vulnerable adults in the voluntary sector for Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Care, and found my passion for working with young people when volunteering abroad in India and Mexico with disadvantaged children.
From there, I embarked on a 3 year Doctorate training in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology at the University of Surrey. During my training and beyond, I have worked in various different clinical settings with a variety of client groups across the life span.
