In addition, I have extensive experience working with undergraduate and postgraduate students as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor at UCL and Imperial College under the University Mentoring Organisation (UMO).
In my years of clinical experience, I have worked with children and young people who have struggled with a wide variety of mental health difficulties, ranging from a mild manifestation to a complex presentation of symptoms. These include depression and anxiety disorders, self-harming, suicidal ideation, eating difficulties, somatisation, unexplained medical illness, aggressive behaviour, attachment difficulties, emotional deregulation and developmental trauma. Furthermore, I have significant experience with adopted, neurodiverse and transgender young people.
I have extensive experience in working with children, adolescents and young adults with a wide range of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. In addition, I have extensive experience in supporting parents who are concerned about their children
