Annette is a registered Clinical Psychologist, trained to deliver a range of evidence-based interventions to children, young people and adults. She has worked clinically for over 9 years, providing psychological support to clients across the lifespan, in the NHS and other public/private sector settings.
Annette uses a multi-modal approach to the assessment and treatment of children, young people and families. She has worked in a number of children’s services (including Child and Adolescent mental health services, a 0-25 mental health service, a Child Development service and Children’s social care), allowing her to refine her skills and approach when working with children, young people and families.
Annette believes that a key component in any successful therapeutic intervention is the relationship a child/young person and family are able to form with their therapist and therefore places an emphasis on relationship building/creating safety throughout therapeutic work. She regularly uses creativity and playfulness in her work in order to support children, young people and families to talk about their experiences/what they may be struggling with and to consider the best way forward.
Annette has a calm, friendly and engaging manner and aims to work at a pace that feels right for a child, young person and/or family.
