I am responsible for a clinical case load and my typical day is seeing clients in both individual and group sessions.
Weekly, I typically attend departmental and Unit meetings dealing with referrals, models of care, ward rounds and care reviews. I offer reflective practice to nursing staff, supervision to other professionals and I am involved in the Trauma Support Service for staff.
I am currently completing my EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) training and I am working towards accreditation. I am working with single event and complex trauma.
I have learned to concentrate on risk analysis, work in a challenging environment and look for the possibilities in people (both clients and colleagues)
My job is rewarding and no two days are the same.
Sometimes, I feel disconnected from the outside world.
