I joined Bradford Teaching Hospitals in November 2019 as an Assistant Psychologist in the Child Psychology Team. My role in the team is to assist clinicians undertaking autism assessments with children. I hope to train as a clinical psychologist in the coming years.
I have previously worked as an assistant psychologist in similar roles on the diagnostic pathway for children and autism, and also adult autism and ADHD. Prior to this, I was lucky enough to gain some wonderful experience working as a mental health support worker within a specialist school in Huddersfield. I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to experience working with children and families outside of clinic, as I think it is important to appreciate the impact that receiving a diagnosis may have on a child and their support network.
I am passionate about food and drink and love to cook! I also have a small menagerie of animals at home, including two small dogs who occupy a great deal of my time with wonderful long walks.
