Within my 18 years of my mental health nursing career, I have worked with all age groups and have supported individuals with various mental health conditions and co- occurring conditions such as Autism and ADHD.
I have previously worked in the CAMHS and EIP services. Within my roles I focused on addressing social and emotional difficulties that young people experience, which I believe has been central to my work within ADHD and Autism.
I am proud to be affiliated with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and the Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Europe Association, which further enhance my professional development and commitment to delivering high-quality care.
Throughout my career, I have been involved in various school projects aimed at raising awareness about neurodevelopmental conditions, mental health, and emotional well-being.
I firmly believe in the importance of continuously expanding my knowledge and skills, and as such, I actively participate in webinars covering topics such as Autism, co-occurring conditions, EMDR, and trauma.
For me, the best part of my job is the fulfilment I experience when supporting individuals in making sense of their experiences and helping them navigate their journey towards improved well-being.
While I am not currently engaged in research, clinical trials, or publications, I remain dedicated to staying updated with the latest advancements and evidence-based practices in my field.
Outside of my professional life, I find solace in mountain biking, which allows me to unwind and connect with nature. It serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Overall, I am deeply committed to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals with ADHD, Autism and their families. I am driven by the belief that every person deserves understanding, support, and the opportunity to thrive with ADHD and Autism.
