I have been a registered nurse since 1991. I previously worked in health, social care and education supporting the needs of children and young people with a range of disabilities and complex health care needs.
I have been the Neurobehavioural Clinical Nurse Specialist for ESNEFT Community Paediatric Team since 2020.
I am involved in the multi disciplinary assessment of children for ADHD and autism. I also run a post autism diagnosis follow up service for school age children.
I have particular interest in mental health, adoption and fostering, support for families/carers and autism. My post graduate training includes counselling, systemic work with families, attachment and trauma, and ADOS assessment.
