About Me

Charlene worked in a variety of mental health services within the NHS before starting to work for the private sector in 2017. She has experience of working with children, young people, families and ‘Looked After Children’ who are experiencing varying levels of psychological distress or trauma. Charlene also provides supervision, consultation and training to professionals and external agencies.

She is experienced in supporting children and young people who present with an array of difficulties, including psychological, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Charlene is passionate about enhancing the parent- child relationship and supporting the application of therapeutic parenting approaches to reduce distress and enhance skill building within children and young people. Charlene utilises a person centred, integrated approach and draws upon a range of models, including attachment and trauma informed frameworks to guide her work. She has a special interest in parenting support, anxiety, emotional regulation and self-harm. Charlene understands the importance of building a safe relationship and ensures that her approach is creative, flexible and tailored to the child/young person’s needs.

Charlene obtained her Psychology Degree at John Moore’s University (2010) and completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Lancaster University (2017). Charlene has presented her research on ‘the impact of self-harm in an inpatient adolescent setting’ at a conference for the BPS (British Psychological Society) and has published in mental health peer reviewed journals. Charlene joined CAYP Psychology in 2020. She offers clinics at Whitefield and online.
