Amanda is a UKCP Registered Systemic Family Psychotherapist with three decades of experience of working with under 5’s and their families, having gained her clinical experience in a CAMHS unit, a specialist children’s charity and in private practice. She currently works as part of the NELFT NHS Foundation Trust Home Treatment team, is part of the Open Dialogue team, and practices on the wards in St Ann’s Hospital in South Tottenham. She still heads up and operates an Ofsted Outstanding Pre-School which she launched in 1991. Amanda is an expert in early years education and has specific interest in helping children, adults and families to understand often complex behaviours.
Amanda is soon to launch We-Cams (Communication avoids Medications) We-CAMs aims to be fast, mobile, and independent and will allow families to feel contained, hopefully preventing young adults from becoming chronic services users and entering the system as long-term patients. She believes that We-CAMs could alleviate some of the pressures that the NHS CAMHS are facing as well as reduce the numbers who become long term users of NHS mental health services.
