My professional experience


I am an HCPC registered senior Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years post-qualifying CAMHS NHS experience working across inpatient and community settings in North London, notably Haringey CAMHS. As a clinical psychologist, I am a specialist in the assessment and treatment of mental health problems and psychological distress and have developed expertise working with children and young people and their families/carers, including those with Autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. I am committed to helping people make meaningful changes in their lives through effective psychological therapy and have worked with a broad range of ages and complex presentations.


Some of the approaches that I draw upon include, amongst others:


· Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for low mood, stress, anxiety, sleep difficulties, post-traumatic stress and psychosis.

· Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for problems with regulating emotions, relationships and suicidal thoughts and urges.

· Prolonged Exposure for Adolescents and Trauma-Focussed CBT for post-traumatic stress.

· Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for anxiety and mood difficulties, along with help to find meaning and value in life.

· Non-Violent Resistance Parenting groups which have been shown to be effective to help parents of children young people with neurodevelopment disorders or behavioural challenges, and/or who may be adopted or have experienced developmental trauma.


In addition, I have significant experience assessing and 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). I have offered and run many groups for both parents (Non-Violent Resistance, Autism Awareness and DBT for Parents of Adolescents) and Young People (such as anxiety, stress, DBT etc).

Personal Approach

When I first meet children, young people and/or their parents or carers, we jointly evaluate together what they may be struggling with and I help to provide clarity, develop goals and devise a treatment approach and plan. For me, it is really important to think about what is the life the person would ideally like to lead and how to get there. I work with kindness and compassion, and I aim to create a safe, trusting and validating environment to enable change and empower children and young people.
