My Experience

I have 12 years of clinical experience within both the private sector and the NHS, and across the lifespan. I have worked with young people and their families or guardians in multiple setting including social care, schools and child and adolescent mental health services. In addition, I have worked therapeutically with adults experiencing a range of emotional difficulties.

My experience includes assessment and treatment of children with complex presentations and difficulties, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, learning difficulties, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety disorders and eating disorders. Within this role, I have provided therapeutic and parenting support to the families of the children.

My Values

It is important to me that I offer a safe, therapeutic space and relationship to clients, within which they can explore the challenges they are facing and develop a better understanding of these. I hope to be able to help clients work towards living a life more in line with their values and goals.

The models I work with

I draw on a range of therapeutic models when working with clients. These include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Psychodynamic Therapy, particularly in terms of attachment relationships and developmental trauma.
