I have worked in various roles including working with children who are cared for by the Local Authority, young carers, and young people with substance misuse issues. I qualified as a social worker in 2013 having completed my Masters In Social Work Studies and moved to working for the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) service in 2016. Here I undertook mental health training including Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents (IPT-A)

During my time with CAMHS I treated young people dealing with issues such as 

  • Asperger's Syndrome

  • Autism

  • Borderline Personality

  • Family Conflict

  • Peer Relationships

  • Relationship issues

  • Self-Harming

  • Suicidal Ideation

  • Teen violence

 

CAMHS showed me that helping adolescents deal with their problems and giving them the opportunity to live a happy and enjoyable life is what I wanted to focus my efforts on.

I know offer online and telephone therapy with a view to being able to offer face to face appointments when it is safe to do so.

I myself am a parent myself and I understand the importance of meeting a young person where they are at. I am very good at engaging young people and like to try and keep some humour into our sessions by finding out what is important to them outside of therapy and utilising this to help the young person.

I feel very passionate about Interpersonal Therapy as it focuses on how relationships affect our mood.

 

Adolescence is a time of exploring the world and figuring out our identities and therefore relationships are fundamental in order to grow up into a happy healthy human being. 

 

I have seen great results in a relatively short space of time using the Interpersonal Therapy framework and I am extremely excited to show how I can help make a positive change to more adolescents helping them get back on track and enjoying life.
