Dr Harrison is a Clinical Psychologist with over 18 years� experience across the NHS and independent sectors. She gained her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Surrey University and has since completed further specialist training in Autism, including being trained in the use of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) and the Developmental, Dimensional and Diagnostic Interview (3Di), which are standardised diagnostic tools.
Dr Harrison has also undertaken specialist training in Developmental Trauma and Attachment related presentations including completing Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) Level 1 and 2 in 2016 and the Attachment, Neurodevelopment and Psychopathology course delivered by the Tavistock and Portman clinic in 2021.
Dr Harrison has worked extensively in specialist CAMHS and Neurodevelopmental teams where she has provided assessments, interventions and training for others. During her time working in CAMHS, she completed specialist training in suicide prevention (STORM training) as well as undertaking further training in the delivery of therapeutic models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Person Construct Psychology (PCP). This has enabled her to provide interventions for children and young people presenting with a range of difficulties including more specialist therapeutic interventions such as Habit Reversal Therapy for Tourettes.
Dr Harrison regularly provides specialist psychological assessments for children who have been looked after or adopted to facilitate better understanding of their needs to inform appropriate support. This includes formulating around the complexities and interplay of developmental trauma and neurodevelopmental conditions.
