 Experience:

Clinical
Provision of specialist clinical psychology assessments, psychological formulations, and evidence-based interventions to children and young people (aged 4-18 years) and their families.

Experience in working with clients who experience a range of mental health difficulties including phobias, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, self-harm behaviours, and co-morbid developmental disorders (autistic spectrum disorders, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder).  Anxiety disorders are my area of special clinical interest.

Working as an integrative therapist, drawing on behavioural, cognitive-behavioural, and family/systems ideas and models.

Experience of facilitating anxiety management groups based on cognitive-behavioural principles.

Provision of neuropsychological assessments when there is a hypothesis that a young person’s mental health concerns are compounded by difficulties related to intellectual ability, memory, or attention. 

Working within a multi-disciplinary team and maintaining good working relationships with other statutory, charitable and voluntary services. 

Supervision/ consultation
Provision of clinical and managerial supervision to multi-disciplinary team colleagues and junior psychology staff.  Consultation to colleagues and professionals from a range of other agencies (including schools and Children’s Services).

Teaching/ Training
Experience in teaching and training, including workshops on common mental health difficulties (anxiety, depression, self-harm) presented to education staff, and more specialist teaching events (anxiety, cognitive-behavioural therapy) offered to CAMHS professionals and Trainee Clinical Psychologists.

Research
My Doctoral thesis was entitled: “School Refusal: The Roles of Anxiety and Cognition”, and investigated the occurrence of negative cognitions in a non-clinical population of school-refusing children.

I was involved, as a cognitive-behavioural therapist, in a national research project that is investigating the long-term efficacy of interventions for adolescent depression.

Within my NHS role I am responsible for supervising Assistant Psychologists who work on outcomes research (related to the national CAMHS Outcomes Research Consortium).

Continuing Professional Development/ Training
HCPC registration requires ongoing engagement in CPD opportunities.  Within my NHS role this includes training in areas such as child protection, risk management, suicide prevention, and information governance.  I have also sought more specialist training opportunities in therapeutic approaches (CBT, CAT, mindfulness) and areas of clinical interest (dissociative disorders) 

In 2015, I gained a ‘Certificate in Creative Therapy’ (Life-Force Centre; endorsed by the BACP). As part of my CPD, I have also published the following case-related work:
