She decided to take the plunge and complete the post-graduate training of 3 years, after which she worked in a family therapy clinic with families where an adult member was suffering from mental distress. In the last 11 years, Terri has been working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
Her experience in that time includes being part of a paediatric liaison team at a large London Hospital, where a large proportion of her caseload consisted of working with young people presenting to hospital with self-harm. Additionally, she worked in two Multi-Dimensional Treatment Foster Care teams. Here she gained valuable experience of working in multi-agency contexts which enriched her own practice. In the last 6 years, Terri has been working with primary school-aged children at risk of exclusion from mainstream education, and their families.
Terri has been supervising and consulting with professionals for many years. In all her work, her stance is to have a collaborative approach where people feel empowered and more effective in the roles they take on.
Terri is a member of the Association for Family Therapy (AFT) and is registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP).
