Megan works as an Educational Psychologist (EP) with a specialism in social and emotional well-being and mental health (SEMH).
Megan generally collaborates with clients (and their families/professionals) to try and work out together their strengths, hopes and barriers and then work with them to create an onward pathway. She is interested in working with the team around the child so that changes at an individual, group and systemic level can happen.
Megan’s work can range from individual consultations, group interventions, staff supervision, parent/carer drop-ins as well as training, policy development and support for critical incidents. As an Educational Psychologist Megan is also skilled at carrying out trauma-informed assessments of individual children. Megan has regularly offered supervision with a range of professionals from statutory services, supporting these teams with the emotional toll of containing complex needs and high levels of risk.
Professionally, Megan prioritises equality and respect but also the importance of hearing others’ views and working collaboratively towards client-centred goals. Personally, Megan values the importance of communication and understanding as a way to remove barriers, provide new narratives and support the potential for change.
Megan finds it a deep privilege working with young people who have often been through hugely challenging life experiences and supporting them to see their true resilience, strengths and ways forward towards hopeful outcomes.
