I am a Clinical Psychologist who has substantial experience in working with children, adolescents, parents, young adults and families. I have completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Masters in Sport & Exercise Psychology with Commendation and Bachelor of Science Degree with Honours in Psychology.
I have over 10 years’ clinical experience working with client groups across the lifespan in a variety of settings. I work with various mental health difficulties including Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Panic Disorders, Trauma/PTSD, Phobias, Self-harm, Suicidal behaviours, Attachment, Separation Anxiety, Family relationship conflict, Anger Management, Exam Stress, Emotional resilience, Self-esteem difficulties, Sleep difficulties, Neuro-developmental Disorders, Family/Parenting difficulties, and Sport Injuries & Performance Difficulties.
I am also trained in administering and interpreting a range of psychometric assessments including; WPPSI (3-6 year olds), WISC-V (6-17 year olds), WAIS (16-90) and neuro-psychological assessments. I have extensive experience working in diagnostic teams for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The results from these assessment processes can also be used to help guide a young person’s learning and inform the type of care and support that they may need.
I am passionate about supporting people and am able to engage with vulnerable children and young people to help them work through highly distressing and challenging circumstances. I have a vast amount of experience working with parents and families as I believe this is a critical part of the therapeutic process, ensuring parents are involved in a young person’s therapeutic journey and promoting positive change not just for the child but for the whole family. Through parent work, I seek to provide psycho-education about their child’s concerns/difficulties as well as providing them with strategies and skills to better assist their child. I also provide in-direct consultation and therapeutic support for parents/carers, schools, and other organisations/professionals.
