About Me

My journey began working in healthcare whilst studying for my degree in social sciences. Knowing I wanted to continue my career in this field, I trained as a Mental Health Nurse. Since 2019, my role has involved forensic neurodevelopmental services for adults, adolescents, and children, spanning both community and inpatient settings.

My expertise centres around assessing children and adolescents for ADHD. Alongside this, I also have a keen interest in how both women’s and men’s physical health can impact ADHD symptoms.

As a trained Dialectical Behavioural Therapist, I have provided DBT services within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). I have also facilitated other community teams in implementing DBT treatment plans.

One of my career highlights was establishing an outreach service and DBT service in an area of North London and supporting service users to get the right support. I have thoroughly enjoyed gaining experience in different fields within mental health. By broadening my knowledge and skills, I have been able to confidently assess the difficulties people are struggling with and provide clear and achievable care plan.

I believe that developing your skills is important. I often participate in self-learning such as reading articles and attending lectures to expand my knowledge and gain a better understanding of new developments in the ADHD field.

The best part of my job is helping people get a better understanding of themselves—whether they have ADHD or not—and recommending potential treatment options. It is incredibly rewarding to see a person's quality of life improve with the right treatment.

In my personal life, I unwind by exploring my artistic side through painting and drawing. As well as this, I also enjoy hiking and immersing myself within nature.
