Charlotte is a Clinical Psychologist and has experience of working with children, young people, adults, and families across a range of settings. These include working with looked after children in a therapeutic community, children and young people’s mental health services, community perinatal mental health services and a mother and baby inpatient unit.

Charlotte’s specialist area of interest is working with individuals, couples and families during pregnancy and the early years of their child’s life, particularly when the parent/s have experienced trauma or when there have been difficulties developing a bond or relationship between parent and infant. Charlotte also has a lot of experience working with children who are experiencing anxiety, trauma, low mood, obsessive behaviours and school anxiety.

Charlotte draws on her training and clinical experience to help identify evidence-based approaches to use with the people she works with. However, she believes that individuals and families are the experts on their lives and therefore play a central role in identifying the solutions to the difficulties they experience. Charlotte endeavours to work collaboratively with each person, couple or family, acknowledging and drawing on their experiences, skills, resources and strengths. Therefore, a person-centred, integrative approach is used to ensure that the approach is informed by the evidence base but adapted to meet your individual circumstances and needs. Charlotte tends to draw on models of attachment and trauma, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and third-wave CBT approaches, such as Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). Charlotte also use post-modernist systemic approaches, drawing on solution focused and narrative therapy.  Charlotte is also currently training in Video Interactive Guidance (VIG).

When working with children Charlotte engages them through creative methods including play, this is to support them to express themselves in an age appropriate and accessible way. In order to support the child to overcome any psychological difficulties they may be experiencing Charlotte works with the child to identify their hobbies, interests and strengths and uses these to help the child find solutions to the difficulties they are experiencing.

Charlotte is registered with the Health Professionals Council (HCPC) registration number:  PYL36167 and is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) Membership Number: 315211
