BSc (Hons) DClinPsych
I have over 10 years’ experience working with children, adolescents, families, and adults with a range of mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions. Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist I have chosen to specialise in working with children and young people as I believe if the right support is given at a young age it can make a big difference to the rest of an individual’s life.
I have worked as part of NHS and private sector services assessing and diagnosing ASC and am passionate about ensuring that young people have access to timely, good quality assessments which help their families and schools put in place the right support at the right time. Deciding to have an assessment for ASC is a big decision and I like to work closely with families to make sure they are clear about what they hope to gain from the assessment so that, whatever the outcome, we can agree recommendations that will meet the needs of the young person and their family.
