People have always been what I’m most interested in, both in terms of understanding and helping them, and this grew into a great passion for the field of Clinical Psychology. I completed my degree in Psychology from the University of Hertfordshire in 2015.
I joined the Help for Psychology team in 2016 and since then have gained a great amount of experience working with children and adults on the Autism Spectrum (including those with the demand avoidant profile), and also with children and adults who present with challenging behaviours, high anxiety and neurodevelopmental differences.
I have a number of years’ experience in assessing the cognitive abilities of children and adults using the WPPSI-IV, WISC-V and WAIS-IV. I am also qualified and experienced in the administration of the ADOS-2.
My experience of working with children and adults who have complex needs, has helped me develop an adaptable approach so that assessments can be best presented, and carried out, in ways that make them accessible to each individual.
During my time at Help for Psychology I have also been a part of ongoing research examining the demand avoidant profile in those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
