About Me

Emma has worked in the NHS for over ten years in a variety of services. Since qualifying as a clinical psychologist, she has specialised in child and adolescent mental health and has experience working with a wide range of psychological difficulties. Emma is currently employed by the NHS in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) where she continues to work on a part-time basis.

Emma obtained her Undergraduate degree in Psychology (BSc) and her Masters degree in Applied Neuropsychology (MSc) at the University of Nottingham. She completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at Royal Holloway, University of London. Emma continues to develop her clinical practice by training and professional development, including completing training courses in various parenting approaches (e.g. Incredible years, the Solihull approach).

Although Emma has extensive experience working with children of all ages, she particularly specialises in working with parents and infants to support the development of positive early relationships, and to ensure parents have the necessary support to manage the challenges of being a new parent. Emma has extensive experience providing individual therapy to children and families, as well as experience providing supervision and consultation to a range of professionals. Emma has worked in schools for many years as a mental health consultant providing support in developing whole-school approaches to wellbeing.

Emma explained: I strongly believe in supporting children and families when mental health and wellbeing challenges are present, in a collaborative and compassionate way. I am particularly passionate about preventative and early intervention approaches. I believe in building upon the strengths and resources each family already possess and ensuring the family are happy with the approach we are taking. I feel parenting is the toughest job in the world with the least amount of training. Therefore, when children are struggling, I firmly believe in providing a space for parents to receive their own support to enable them, in turn, to support their children.
