Hi, I'm Jo.
I am a Senior Mental Health Practitioner and registered Occupational Therapist (OT). For 10 years, I worked in a CAMHS team in Devon, seeing all sorts of young people, families and younger children and providing therapeutic interventions. I believe that working together with a young person and their family to gain greater self-knowledge and developing a positive self-identity are key components to good mental health and wellbeing.
Having recently joined this small, very experienced and friendly team, I am really enjoying working with families and young people, seeing them together and separately as needed. I don't prescribe medication but work alongside our doctors using a range of therapies as well as monitoring risk and medication. I am particularly interested in working with young people and their families.
My work is informed by experience of using a wide range of psychological therapies and modalities, including family/systemic work, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) based interventions, mindfulness and creative therapies. I have over 20 years of experience, prior to this working in CAMHS, with adults with mental health and physical health problems in the NHS. My initial training is as an Occupational Therapist and I am registered and regulated with the HCPP.
