About Me

Miriam has worked as a clinician within the NHS for the past six years. Miriam has experience of working with people of different ages and backgrounds who are struggling with psychological distress. For example, she has worked within adult, older adult, learning disability, forensic and child mental health services. During her training as a Clinical Psychologist, Miriam chose to specialise in working with children, adolescents and their families who were experiencing a range of psychological and emotional difficulties. Miriam is currently employed by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust where she continues this work. In particular, Miriam specialises in working with children and young people who have experienced trauma as well as families who are experiencing difficulties within parent-child relationships. Miriam also works with children and adolescents who are struggling with eating disorders and a range of other behavioural and emotional difficulties.

Prior to her role within the NHS, Miriam spent several years working as a research assistant at the University of Manchester where she contributed to mental health research. Miriam also spent time working within adult mental health services where she delivered face-to-face therapeutic interventions as well as computerised cognitive behavioural therapy. Miriam has also worked within education as both a teaching assistant and as a research assistant exploring mainstream educational provision for children with autistic spectrum disorders. Miriam has presented at conferences for the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies) and has published academic peer-reviewed journal articles on mental health. She has also written a book chapter on emotional regulation.

Miriam was awarded a first class honours degree from the University of Manchester for her Undergraduate Psychology degree (2006). She completed a Masters degree in Forensic Psychology at the Manchester Metropolitan University (2010) and she completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Manchester (2017).
