About Me

Ceri is a Senior Clinical Psychologist who has worked in NHS mental health services since 2008. She qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2016 and has specialised in working with children, young people and their families throughout her career. She has extensive experience of working with children with a variety of mental health presentations in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), as well as experience of working in specialist teams, including those aimed at young people with autism and psychosis. She has an in-depth knowledge of child development and of specialist assessment measures, including cognitive assessments.

Ceri is particularly passionate about intervening early and ensuring children and young people can receive therapeutic support in a timely manner. She places a significant emphasis on helping young people and their families to feel comfortable and she understands the barriers that many families face in accessing psychological support. She also recognises the stress that some parents and carers can feel when their child experiences mental health difficulties and she chose to undertake her doctoral thesis in this area.

Ceri has a keen interest in working systemically, meaning that she understands people’s difficulties within their wider contexts (such as friendships, relationships, school etc). When providing psychological therapy, she uses an integrative approach, meaning that she draws on different therapeutic models to suit the needs of the person she is working with. Her clinical psychology doctoral level training included Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and systemic approaches. She has also completed post-qualification training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

In addition to her direct clinical work, Ceri also has extensive experience in providing clinical supervision for assistant, trainee, and qualified clinical psychologists, as well as colleagues from other professional backgrounds.

She is a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, PYL33160)
