CBT, systemic, and narrative) and has completed additional training in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP; certified practitioner), Theraplay (to level 2), the Dynamic Maturational Model of attachment, and EMDR (level 1 & child). She is able to undertake psychological and cognitive assessments with young people; AIM 2 assessments (re. sexually harmful behaviours) and has specialist skills in developing comprehensive psychological formulations for networks that can assist in developing a better understanding of an individual's complex needs and to inform decision-making around their care and healthy psychological well-being.
