My professional experience
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist who is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society.
I studied Undergraduate Psychology at University College London and went on to work as a research assistant investigating the impact of acquired and developmental disorders of social cognition on social interaction (e.g., acquired brain injury or Autism respectively). I later went on to complete my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London.
Specialising in child and adolescent mental health, I have worked in community and inpatient settings in the NHS and community settings in the Local Authority. I worked as a Clinical Psychologist with adolescents with mental health difficulties who were at risk of self-harm and suicidal ideation in Barnet Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and I became a Team Manager within Barnet CAMHS.
I have significant experience in the assessment, formulation, and treatment of a range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, depression, obsessional compulsive disorder, and traumatic stress. I also have experience working with children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and Autism, and I am trained at administering the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2). As part of my experience, I have offered individual and group work to children and families, as well as providing consultation and training to professionals.
I work closely with children/young people and their families to assess and formulate their difficulties in a holistic and non-judgemental approach. Following assessment, I collaborate with the child/young person and their family to devise a care plan that aims to support them to achieve their agreed upon goals. I use an integrative approach that draws on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and systemic approaches.
