My Approach & Experience
With over 20 years of experience of working in mental health, I fully understand the challenge families often face in finding the right support for a child or young person who is experiencing a difficult time in their life.
I have worked in NHS Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) since qualifying from the doctoral programme at University College London in 2003, providing high quality treatments to children, young people and their families or carers with a broad range of mental health difficulties, with varying degrees of severity and complexity.
Every child is unique and will have their own set of strengths and areas of difficulty, and as such therapy will be uniquely tailored to that child or young person’s needs. Building a trusting, warm and positive therapeutic relationship is absolutely vital to my way of working, in order that we can create a safe therapeutic space that can lead to different and creative ways of thinking and being.
I like to work in a holistic way, bringing ideas and techniques together from a number of therapeutic modalities that are always grounded in robust research and evidence, and working together towards an agreed shared goal. I draw upon a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dyadic Developmental Therapy (DDP) and Parenting. Whilst I have expertise across the whole age-range (0-18 years) I have a special interest in Early Years, seeing these years as wholly informative and crucial to later development and adjustment in adolescence and beyond into adulthood.
I continue to hold a senior position in CAMHS and within this role, in addition to clinical work, I provide clinical supervision to other members of staff and those in training positions. I am also a visiting Lecturer at the University of Southampton, providing teaching to trainees on the Clinical Psychology Doctorate Programme.
