I have a wealth of experience in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. I believe in the multidisciplinary approach, which can include considering medication, talking therapy, alternative therapies and lifestyle changes to develop individual care plans for each young person under her care. I take on an holistic approach, and consider promoting wellbeing including nutrition and physical exercise, as part of longer term recovery work. I understand the anxiety around seeking help for mental health, and I have a gentle approach to consultations. I am also aware that it can be a stressful time for parents and family members, and I work to develop relationships with parents over the course of their child’s treatment. I believe that every young person, with the right support, can overcome their mental health difficulties to gain access to opportunities in education, employment and positive life experiences.
I specialise in anxiety disorders (including social anxiety, generalised anxiety, panic disorder, OCD), Mood disorders (including depression, bipolar disorder, emotional dysregulation) PTSD, ASD, ADHD, Psychotic Disorders, and mental health difficulties.
