I’m a CAMHS therapist with 10 (and a half!) years experience. Marketing not being my strong point, I haven’t particularly promoted this through my business. I will be setting up a new CAMHS specific page soon, but just wanted to highlight this. I continue to work part time in the NHS, providing support such as assessment of children and young people’s mental health needs, recommending treatment plans, liaising with the network/team around the child, risk assessment and management, and offering specific therapeutic input, such as EMDR and CBT. A short piece of therapeutic work with me, through Mindscape, may be helpful in providing prompt access to skilled, responsive help for your child, and reduce the risk of ongoing distress or future difficulties. I also work for local authorities, through the Adoption Support Fund, providing therapeutic input, mainly EMDR. Please contact me if you would like to know more. EMDR is now recommended by NICE as a second line treatment for children and young people, and has long been recommended by the WHO as a first line treatment with this client group.
I am now offering a 10% discount to all NHS employees (rather than the two tier, complicated system that gave people in different Trusts different discounts). In the face of criticism and lack of funding, NHS staff are doing a great job – I have many extremely hardworking and dedicated colleagues. This is a small way in which I can give something back. Stress and difficult incidents often cause people to seek therapy, such as EMDR, which is evidence based for trauma, as well as hypnotherapy – I see lots of NHS staff who are struggling with stress and eating, often impacted on by night shifts and pressure of work. I know the therapies I offer can make a difference, effectively and rapidly, so please contact me if you would like any further information.
