I have over 20 years’ experience working with children and young people across England and Scotland in pre-school, primary and secondary settings. During this time, I have worked directly with pupils, and provided consultation and advice to schools and parents in relation to the social, emotional and curricular development of children. I am an experienced Class Teacher, Support for Learning Teacher and have worked as an Educational Psychologist in councils and private practice. With extensive experience in education, I am able to provide a range of assessments to explore dyslexia and dyscalculia in children and adults, and cognitive assessments to explore strengths and difficulties within one’s approach to thinking and learning. I possess a Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) and am on the BPS registered Test Users list.

I have many years of experience supporting children and young people with social communication difficulties. I have worked within multidisciplinary teams in council practice, assessing for autism, and have many years of training schools and providing consultation to support children and young people on the autism spectrum. I am qualified to use the ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule).

Therapeutically, I have many years of experience supporting children and young people using a variety of models such as Narrative Therapy and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy. I have completed accredited training in CBT and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and am also qualified to practice EMDR with children, having also completed the EMDR Child and Adolescent training.

I am able to provide behavioural consultations relating to the social and emotional needs of children and have experience supporting children with grief, loss and bereavement, as well as emotionally based school avoidance.
