Practitioner becoming certified in DDP
Michelle has a passion for working with children and families, and has worked for many years within the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) as a Senior Clinical Psychologist. Prior to this she worked primarily within Adult Mental Health Services, and more specifically with women who had a history of significant childhood abuse. It was therefore a very natural progression for her to move towards DDP as a model for working with young people, and she has been making progress with her practicum over a number of years, having recently taken some time out to focus on her family and health. Michelle has recently made the move to private practice in order to focus on her DDP practicum more intensively and really embed herself in the model. She currently covers the areas of Plymouth and East Cornwall in her private work, but is happy to consider requests outside of this geographical area.
