I specialise in working with children, young people and their families. Since qualifying in 2009 I have spent my time working in a range of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) within the NHS. I use therapeutic approaches and techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused therapy (CFT) and Mindfulness. I work collaboratively with families and young people to help them to reach their goals.
