Since qualifying as a RMN from the Humberside College of Health, Sarah has had a variety of clinical positions within child and adolescent mental healthcare settings; which include working within child and family inpatient units; CAMHS specialist community mental health services; an Under 19’s specialist substance misuse service; and within a National Health and Social Care initiative aimed at developing multi-agency family support services, with investment from partnership agencies (namely health, social care and education).
Sarah joined the Department of Health Sciences Mental Health Teaching team in 2011 and has taught undergraduate, postgraduate and SSPRD courses in a range of subject areas relating to nursing and mental healthcare across the life span.
Whilst Sarah enjoys many aspects of nurse education and practice, her particular interests relate to clinical supervision and supporting effective therapeutic working with children, young people, and their families in order to support them with addressing their emotional and mental health needs.
Throughout her career, Sarah has been regularly involved in mentoring and supporting students from a variety of disciplines in practice, whilst acting as a clinical supervisor for CAMHS and Inter-agency colleagues. Both her clinical and current lecturer role has enabled her to maintain an interest in supporting the mentoring and clinical supervision process in practice.
