As a Clinical Psychologist specialising in working with children and adolescents I have worked in a variety of settings. I am best known for my work with children, young people, and their families. However I also work with adults.
The role of the Clinical Psychologist is to reduce psychological distress (e.g. depression, anxiety, chronic stress) and enhance and promote psychological wellbeing. This is achieved through an interactive therapeutic process, which aims to enable each individual to understand their difficulties, increase their ways of coping and feel better about themselves and others.
I offer psychological assessment and evidence-based treatments in a holistic and non-judgemental fashion.Here are some of the difficulties I work with:
- emotional and behavioural difficulties in children and adolescents;
- anxiety and depression;
- serious and enduring mental illness;
- adjustment to physical illness;
- neurological disorders;
- addictive behaviours;
- eating disorders;
- self harm;
- behaviour disorders;
- personal, family, and relationship problems.
