I have experience in providing case management to older children with complex physical and emotional needs. I am involved in liaising with local Children’s and Young People’s Mental Health Services to ensure adequate support and care plans are in place. Where necessary I source private psychological services should statutory input not be available in a timely fashion.
I act as a lead liaison between families and the educational services and provide necessary input for Education and Health Care Plans.
I use my strong communication skills to build a good rapport with my clients, their families and health professional staff involved in their care. I work with a client centred approach, with care and compassion and a positive attack. I can broker effective solutions to complex issues to allow my clients to achieve their goals.
